    Loved it! Served it at a party for 20 adults - a big hit! I used halved grape tomatoes and next time will put in more pepperoni (maybe thicker sliced and quartered - they wanted to stick together) and fresh mushrooms instead of jar. I used mini penne and it was really pretty. I served it well chilled (4 hours in fridge), but enjoyed it much more later on at the party when it was lukewarm. I don't think I'll make it ahead next time. But will definitely be making it again (and again, and again)  -  06 Apr 2003  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    Good and easy pasta salad for any occassion...even dinner! I used fresh mushrooms and ommitted the olives and tomatoes (none available). Also, I added ALMOST 1/4c of the dressing to the salad while refrigerating to keep the noodles from clumping together, which I think enhanced the flavor. When it came time to serve, added the remaining dressing and per the suggestion of a friend that was over, I mixed in 1 TBLS of white sugar, which added a very subtle touch of sweetness!  -  19 Jan 2003  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
