There is another recipe on this site from the same contributor; Traci Wynne, called Shrimp Pasta Salad. The ingredients are the same, but the measurements completely different. I love that recipe but found this one just okay. I recommend searching for the other one if this sounds good to you.

Delicious, but too much pasta. I started with 3 cups of uncooked pasta, didn't use all of that. I will make it again but use maybe 1 to 1 1/2 cups uncooked pasta. I added celery and a little bit of cocktail sauce - @ 1 tablespoon.

Do I have to use reduced fat mayo & yogurt? If I use regular will it still taste as good?

This is a wonderful and refreshing salad. It's a big hit when I take it to potluck gathers as a side, but a lot of people tell me it's good enough to be the main course. I use the mini shells and use 3C instead of 4, seems to be a better balance.

Wonderful,fresh flavor. However, this recipe does not have nearly enough dressing for my taste. I would recommend doubling the amount of dressing and perhaps the peas and shrimp as well.
