To accompany the sandwiches, serve Tricolor Pasta Salad from Lorraine Darocha of Berkshire, Massachusetts. Pretty pasta spirals and convenient frozen veggies are tossed with a light dressing to make this colorful medley. "For vegetarians, you can add protein-rich chickpeas or beans to make it a main dish," Lorraine recommends.

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Feb. 2, 2014

I think the concept was correct but I always use fresh julienne carrots, broccoli heads, red peppers and artichoke hearts. Definitely use the Italian dressing
