This is pretty close to something I make myself. I omit the peppers and onions and add cucumbers black olives and Italian salami that has been sliced and quartered. You can also add shredded cheese of your choice for extra flavor. Read More

Fast, easy, good. Also added a small can of chopped black olives. Made this again the other night and added about 1/3 cup chopped zucchini which really absorbed the dressing well. Read More

We did eat this for days. I took it to a cook out and it was devoured but there was still plenty left. This was my first time making a pasta salad and this was easy. Definitely a good recipe. Read More

Quick easy colorful tasty and the right proportions of ingredients. Makes a giant bowl of the stuff and for a good reason. Used "Italian Restaurant-Style Dressing" http://salad.allrecipes.com/az/ItalianRestaurantStyleDres.asp for the dressing and it went excellently. Read More

Love the kind of noodles the recipe calls for. I especially enjoyed the flexibility this recipe allows. We don't like mushrooms so I simply added some extra vegetables of different kinds. This is an excellent dish to serve to any kinds of friends; if they are vegetarians on a diet or omnivores! Changes I made: a Greek dressing (still fat-free) for a different flavor; pepperoni for my little sister; chicken when I served as a main dish (I wouldn't recommend adding both pepperoni and chicken together; these are all tips from different meals.)All in all this is an excellent recipe!
