I prefer to use whole grape tomatoes, since some of my family members do not like tomatoes, this way they can leave them in the bowl.

So I have the original pasta magazine that this was published in and it actually 2/3 CUP olive oil!!! It is to die for I might add! I have never had a bad review on this salad and have made it many times. Try it with 2/3 cup :)

I made this tonight for tomorrow's Memorial Day party, and it turned out awesome! I misread the directions and added 3 Tablespoons of olive oil instead of 2/3 of a Tablespoon, but it didn't harm the flavor at all, and I think I'll do the same next time. I don't normally like pasta salad, but this is very good!

I loved the ingredients in this receipt--but it was very dry! I think the 2/3 "tablespoon" olive oil should read "2/3 cups Olive Oil"! I put the dressing ingredience in the blender but there was'nt enough liquid to blend!

I was a bit confused about the amount of oil, was it supposed to be 2 to 3 TBLS or 2/3 of a cup? I don't think 2/3of a tablespoon made sense for so much pasta.
