This is a go-to recipe for me for parties, showers, and holidays. It's filling and serves as either a meal or side dish. My family requests it regularly. I do use different italian dressing for marinade because it's easier for me.

This is very similar to the pasta salad I have been making for years. You can change up the meats and cheeses but I find salami and provolone the best as they have so much flavor. Also, I use Kalamata olives as they have more taste than plain black olives.

Excellent dressing! It makes a great side with burgers.

I love this salad and everything in it. I made it with smoked provolone cheese and it added additional flavor - so good! Will definitely make this again!

I think the marinade is good but next time might add 3/4 t. Of sugar to it because it was a bit tart.

Our family loves this pasta salad! I've been making it since it first came out years ago! It's nice because I add lots of vegetables and adapt it to the tastes of whoever I'm serving it to. I totally love the dressing and use lots of fresh herbs in the summer.

It was good, very average, but not outstanding compared to many other pasta recipes that I have tried from this site.

This was good, but not really the type of pasta salad we like. We ate it up, though! I added some ranch with the leftovers and that was pretty tasty!
