Reviews for Cold Shrimp Pasta Salad
"I love it :)"
"Do I have to use reduced fat mayo & yogurt? If I use regular will it still taste as good?"
"Excellent! Even better the next day. Easy, fresh, wonderful!"
"Wonderful,fresh flavor. However, this recipe does not have nearly enough dressing for my taste. I would recommend doubling the amount of dressing and perhaps the peas and shrimp as well."
