I made this for a party and it tasted great and I would definitely make it again but with changes. I didn't give this 5 stars because there was way too much pasta called for in this recipe so next time I will probably cut the amount of pasta in half. Also I would use a different pasta shape like bowties or small shells. People kept asking if I was supposed to heat it up they didn't realize it was a cold spaghetti salad. But everyone who ate it thought it tasted great - in fact my grandmother who is a harsh critic of how people cook even asked me for the recipe but she also said "too much pasta" and "use bowties next time."

I wasn't sure about the thyme so I left it out. Before eating the dish I did a taste test and put some on my plate in 3 separate sections. I put a dash of thyme on one some dill on the 2nd and some Old Bay Seasoning on the 3rd & mixed each one a little bit. My preference was for the dill. It tasted OK without the dill too. Read More

this pasta salad was super tasty and really quite easy to make. i made it using dill instead of thyme and less pasta like other reviewers suggested. the only thing i would do differently next time is i will break the pasta in half before cooking - it was really hard to get everything to combine with super long strands. still i will defintely make again.

Wow! I can't believe how easy and good this salad is. It is very good as listed but I substituted dill for the thyme and left out the garlic all together. Can't go wrong either way. Read More

This was really yummy! I too thought a full pound was too much pasta so I cut it back but I liked the idea of using a vermicelli or spaghettini instead of the usual smaller bite-size pastas. I too instinctively went with the dill weed instead of the thyme (hey it's SHRIMP!) and also I added extra parmesan cheese to give it a bit more of a saltiness. Great dish for a buffet! Read More

I used bowtie pasta instead of vermicelli and garlic powder instead of fresh garlic. I like dill better than thyme so used dill. I will make this again for a cool summer salad. Read More

This was really good & great for a big group. There did not seem to be enough mayo & spices so I increased the mayo by 1/2 cup & threw in some more spices & it was perfect. Read More
