I had my doubts, but it worked out just fine. I made it according to the recipe and I thought the dressing was a little overpowering. I then drizzled a little olive oil on it and it was much better. I'll be making this again.

Quick, easy, and delicious! This is perfect for summer, when fresh tomatoes are so abundant. I used angel hair pasta and opted out the red onion. For the "Italian dressing", I kept it very, very simple and used a mix of olive oil and minced garlic. It doesn't get much better or much simpler than this!

I'm not sure if this is supposed to be eaten warm or cold, but I made it cold, and it was a nice light pasta salad. It's easy to make and a great way to use basil and tomatoes from a garden. I used an Italian dressing mix and just threw all the ingredients together in the bowl rather than mixing it separately, so I wound up using more dressing than the recipe called for, but it's good that way. I made the dressing with balsamic vinegar and olive oil (I'll probably reduce the oil next time to make it healthier). After tasting the salad, I added extra onion, which I feel was an improvement. I think it would also benefit from more basil and maybe some garlic as suggested by other reviewers.

I added parmasan plus an italian blend of cheeses. And, I added garlic and lots of italian seasoning, salt, pepper and red pepper flakes for more flavor. I used Roasted Pepper Italian Dressing - and I added fresh vegetables like broccoli, mushroom, zucchini, bell pepper and olives. Quite healthy and pretty tasty! Thanks for sharing!

Very tasty (and EASY). Two things I look for. I did add some garlic as previously recommended, but also threw in some left over BBQ chicken (w/out the sauce) we had from the night before. That turned out to be a nice addition. This is a very nice summer dish we'll be doing again. Thanks.

I made this with whole wheat penne and added some italian seasoning to it...I served it with the Wonderful Short Ribs from this site. Easy & tasty side dish.

This sounded good until you got to the part with the bottled dressing. Instead, I would have sauteed some garlic and olive oil and then proceeded from there.

I loved the simplicity of this dish. Just moved into a new house and was able to unpack the minimal anout of kitchen stuff to make!

We make this quite often now. We use the Good Seasons Italian Dressing mix and use Balsamic vinegar for extra flare and color, rather than using a prepared Italian dressing. There's never any left overs with this one.

This was awesome!My only regret is finding the recipe at the end of Summer tomato season! I added fresh minced garlic, and for the dressing I used a package of Good Season's Cheese and herbs dressing, subbing Balsamic for regular vinegar. I omitted the onion, but that is just my personal taste. I will definitely be making this again! I would like to try adding cooked shrimp next time! Thanks, Kelcampbell!
