Reviews for Marinated Italian Pasta Salad
"I made this salad in replace of Potato Salad for Thanksgiving last year and my family ranted and raved about it. My husband has requested I make this every year for the holidays after trying it. My favorite part about it is, you can make it ahead and it becomes one less dish to worry about."
"Super easy. It's even better with Ken's Steakhouse Lite Cesar dressing. Make it the night before. Toss some banana peppers on there before serving. It's beautiful and is quite tasty. The bowl was clean after the party!"
"This is one of my favorite go-to recipes for potlucks and picnics!"
