Was looking for a non-mayo based pasta salad and tried this one. Loved the flavors! Used yellow and orange bell pepper (hubby doesn't like green) but that was the only change I made. Might make extra dressing next time, as the pasta really soaked it up. Might also add a little fresh cilantro.

Unfortunately since the pepper was raw, all we could taste was the pepper. It drowned out all the other flavors
