I absolutely loved this recipe, however my fellas didn't. I will make this again, but I'll halve the recipe since it will be just me eating it. I thought it was great though. Would be wonderful for a potluck!

We thought this recipe was good! I used my homemade roasted red pepper hummus in the dressing and mixed it in with the pasta the night before. When I was ready to serve the salad, I simply stirred in a little more Italian dressing. A nice change of pace from mayonnaise-based dressings and something I'll make again!

I cut the recipe down to serve two and made composed salads instead of combining all in a large bowl. With the dressing "on the side" we were able to use what we wanted. The dressing is so delicious! Will definitely make this again.

Love this recipe - my family is not a hummus fan but i was able to sneak it into this and they all loved it - the feta makes it so special and they always love a pasta salad - this is a keeper
