A nice dish to bring to a barbecue. Can be made the night before, but keep the tomatoes out until a couple hours before serving.

It was a bit bland. I added salt and pepper and it made it better. My family said they would definitely eat it again. Read More

This is very good. I cut the recipe in half for my family of 3. I used elbow macaroni and added some red pepper which gave it a nice crunch. Also added a little pepper and used dry parsley rather than fresh. Very light and simple to make. Read More

Really good recipe will use it again and simple too. Really liked the parsley and the tomatoes were a good touch. Only bad thing was too much mayo used half the mayo the second time and came out much better and could taste the other ingredients better. Read More

This recipe is great. I started making this because I needed to have a simple pasta salad to make during the summer for lunch for my boyfriend Bryan something that would hold up well for the whole week. This was perfect and he loved it. Thank you Jill for submitting it. Read More

My fiance makes this for me every time he wants to cheer me up... and it works! Amazing recipe! We omit the parsley and use diced cheese instead of grated. Sometimes we make it with elbow macaroni instead of corkscrew. Read More
