We take classic panzanella ingredients like ripe tomatoes, peppers and olives and toss them with hot noodles for a hearty pasta dish. My kids especially like the crunchy croutons. —Ashley Pierce, Brantford, Ontario

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Jul. 17, 2014

This is such a nice, colorful, quick and easy meal that it will become one of your go-to meals for a hot summer day. As a volunteer field editor, I have made a similar recipe for years, usually adding bits of ham or chicken to the mix, along with a little minced garlic. Ashley Pierce's version is equally as good. Bravo!
