I make almost the same recipe for all our cook outs and holidays. The only thing different is I also add to mine pepperoni, cauliflower, chopped up cucumber, and use shells instead of spaghetti.The shells hold the dressing better. Read More

Prepared as directed. Good points - relatively quick easy to prepare filling meal. So-so point - lacked something in the flavor dept. Don't know that I'd try this one again. Read More

I also make this all the time. I add italian marinated chicken strips and I use the Salad Supreme Seasoning. I think the recipe actually is supposed to say Salad Sumpreme Seasoning, not Italian Seasoning. Try the Salad Seasoning you will love it. I also add grated cheese and no cheddar. Read More

Off and on I have kept this in my fridge for my children to snack on for years. I use parmesan instead of cheddar and vary the veggies. Often I will toss in quartered pepperoni slices or ham cubes. Thank you. Read More

Good summer noodle salad. I went and bought a pepperoni and hard salami stick (the smallest ones I could find) and cut them into cubes and added it. Also I LOVE Italian dressing but find that a TBLS of white sugar keeps the heartburn away. Read More

Made this for a summer cookout. It was good the day I made it but FANTASTIC a couple days later. I used the parmesean cheese as others suggested instead of the cheddar cheese and I think that was an excellent choice! It was light flavorful and delcious! (I'm having leftovers today for lunch!)
