    This was very good. I chilled it overnight. My husband and I both enjoyed it. I will make it again.  -  14 Jul 2001  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    I have made this now 3 times because it is so good. I use Barilla plus whole wheat pasta and have made it twice with canned tuna also. You can also use whatever vegestables you have on hand. Today I used peas instead of corn. Very yummy! Thanks for sharing!  -  10 Jul 2007  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    This was my first attempt at a pasta salad, and it turned out to be easy and delicious! I actually made a very simplified version, using only the pasta, mayo, and Italian dressing and throwing in some celery and tomatoes, and it was still very tasty. Thanks for a great recipe!  -  14 May 2003  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
