Reviews for Potatoes with Beans 'n' Pasta
"The first time I made this recipe it was just ok, but we really liked the potato and pasta combination. The second time I made this I added some chopped fresh basil and some sundried tomatoes, substituting the oil in the tomatoes for the oil called for in the recipe. It's now one of our favorite summer salads"
"This does take a lot of time to make but it is worth it. This would also be great for a pot luck dish."
