'I've made this salad many times for my husband and me,' Nancy Adams of Las Vegas, Nevada writes of her flavorful and fetching macaroni medley. 'We like it for lunch with pineapple-topped ham slices and sweet potatoes. Or you can stir in a can of tuna into the salad for a complete meal.'

This pasta salad is a staple in our home. I do make some slight modifications. Leave out the olives and I use 1/2 cup of good Italian dressing and add shrimp. My family loves it! Read More

It's very simple light and refreshing! I also added in some feta cheese and olive oil to hold the salad together as a whole, while giving a stronger Mediterranean style and still staying healthy! Read More

Good stuff, the ladies in my office at work devoured it. I subbed the black olives for manzanilla olives since that's what I had on hand, and dry parsley flakes instead of fresh. A nice change from the standard pasta salad. Read More

I made this recipes because I was in a pinch for our family potluck and I had all of the ingredients on hand. I didn't notice I was supposed to add the juice with the artichokes and I drained them. It was dry without the juice. I think adding the italian dressing would complete it. I also added some feta as another reviewer suggested and it was great. I'll keep the recipe but I'll make sure I add italian dressing next time. Thanks! Read More

I made it exactly as the recipes states and thought it was pretty good, but a little dry, even with the artichokes undrained. So I added about 2 tbsp of Roasted Red Pepper Italian dressing and it was perfect! I love it because it has no mayo in it like regular pasta salad. Read More

I made this for my boyfriend's family and everyone enjoyed it, lots of compliments. It was super easy! I did add more artichoke hearts and marinade since I had a big jar of it and I used dried parsley instead of fresh. Read More

Not bad. I chose this because I have leftover artichoke marinade and wanted to do something with it. I don't have any artichokes left, so I had to leave those out. Don't be shy with the marinade if you have extra--this salad can handle it! I added avocado and chicken to make it a bit heartier. Worked well. Thanks for the recipe! Read More
