MY REVIEW
Reviewed Nov. 17, 2013

"A great pasta salad that is so quick to make and keeps well! I have used different types of pasta and also added more veggies to the salad. Be sure to stir occasionally so that the dressing is distributed evenly!! I make this a day ahead and add the tomatoes a few hours before serving so they don't get too mushy."
