"OMG! If it has pasta in it, it's NOT antipasto. Maybe not a bad recipe for a pasta salad, but please change the name. Thanks."

"Wow was this salad easy to make & so good! I used mozzarella instead of provolome, but it still turned out great. Would defintiely make again & it's really easy to cut in half for a smaller serving."

"So good! I did quarter the recipe because it's just the 2 of us. Didn't add beans or olives but I did add marinated mushrooms (quartered), and marinated artichokes (quartered). Also things on a great antipasti platter. Loved the meat and cheese! I also used fresh moz I had to use up."

"Best pasta salad I've ever had!! Used Canellini beans instead of Garbanzos. Used garlic stuffed green olives instead of black olives. I halved the recipe but should have quartered it. This is now a favorite. Thank you for sharing the recipe."

"Love the flavor. The dressing is a wonderful change from bottled Italian dressing. My husband and I eat this as the main dish for lunch as it has the meats. I do not always use the garbanzo beans (or beans at all). It is so good."
