"pretty good stuff, but i had to add my personal touch to it, and put in a little diced prosciutto, and used sun dried tomatoes instead of the cherry tomatoes."

"This has been a potluck favorite of mine for years. I use a 12-oz box of pasta, which is a little more than the recipe calls for, and it doesn't make a difference. I just finished making the latest batch and put the dressing ingredients in a Ziploc bag rather than in a jar. What slick trick! No messy jar to wash; I scooped a little of the salad mixture into the bag to "scrape" out the last of the dressing in the bag. Delicious salad that keeps well!!"

"This recipe was a great break from the normal chicken, beef, pork recipe's I usually stick to. My fiance' loved the salad and asked me to make it again! The leftovers kept great for about 2 days and so we ate it all up for lunches and even snacks! Recommended for sure!"

"Yum! My family loves this! I have substituted the provalone with feta cheese and added some chopped garlic to the dressing. It's a great recipe to add your own personal touch."

"I made this for a work potluck and it was super good. I don't nomally make things so high in fat, but who can resist salami and pepporoni? Everyone loved it and I'm making it again for our Thanksgiving get together. The best part is you can make it the night before, and it's so flavorful and pretty."

"This is a great salad. I add a T. of pesto in the dressing as I shake it up before adding. I make colored fusilli for the pasta. Also, it's a great way to use up veggies from the garden. I was able to cut up a zucchini and use steamed green beans in the salad this week. This was a great way to use up garden veggies.

"This is the best pasta salad ever! I have been making it for several years now. It's so much better than the pasta salads that some people throw together with bottled Italian salad dressing. I wouldn't change a thing about this recipe! It's perfect!"
