Five stars because it was super easy to make it tastes how you would expect and it looks great! Lots of flavor from the Caesar dressing and pepperoni. Fresh broccoli gives it a nice crunch making the overall texture of this pasta salad superb. Read More

I'm giving this recipe 3.5 stars...it was good but after sitting in the fridge for a few hours it was extremely dry. We did enjoy the combination of flavors but had I known how dry it was gonna be I would've made more dressing. I made the 'Caesar Salad Supreme' dressing from this site and it was wonderful in this there just wasn't enough and I added more than called for (maybe I was supposed to use more of a vinegarette-type caesar dressing and that was the issue???). I may try to play around w/ this more b/c like I said it was good just dry...Thanks for sharing.:) Read More
