    Used different ingredients. I added parmasan plus an italian blend of cheeses. And, I added garlic and lots of italian seasoning, salt, pepper and red capsicumflakes for more flavour. I used Italian Dressing - and I added fresh vegetables like broccoli, mushroom, zucchini, bell pepper and olives. Quite healthy and pretty tasty! Thanks for sharing!  -  29 Sep 2008


    Altered ingredient amounts. This was very quick, easy, and tasty. Very light for summer! I used Farfalle pasta, 6 roma tomatoes, chopped roasted red capsicums and a small can of sliced black olives. I only had a handful of fresh basil, so I used that plus some dried. I skipped the onion because my family doesn't care for it. I added more grated parm than called for in the recipe. Even my picky 8 year old liked this, and my 12 year old said it was a keeper! Good warm and cold too!!  -  29 Sep 2008


    Used different ingredients. This is excellent. I added about 1 teaspoon of miniced garlic. This is wonderful hot, but I liked it better as a nice refreshing macaroni salad! Also would consider adding a can of olives for the salad.  -  29 Sep 2008
