YUM! The only issue that I had (and it was my own personal preference) was that it was a bit too vinegar-y for me but I will know to reduce that next time. I didn't measure any of the add-ins just did everything to taste. LOVED the fresh basil in this! Oh I didn't have any asiago on hand so I used parmesan which was great. This was a nice different pasta salad that I will def be making again! Thanks for sharing.:) Read More

I chose this recipe because my husband loves all these ingredients individually but neither of us was impressed with the end result. Contrary to the receipe title I did not find this very quick to prepare and all the yummy and pricey ingredients were lost in a sea of noodles at the end. I also had some issues with the cheese: the thinly sliced provolone didn't agree with the other ingredeints shape-wise and the grated asiago became a little clumpy when tossed in with the dressing. I could see these ingredients transformed into a very yummy sandwich though - just substitute bread for noodles and reduce the vinegar to a splash once assembled. Read More

It is delightful! It can be prepared ahead of time customized (I love basil so I went a little overboard with it and I did use white wine in place of red wine vinegar but those are personal preferences). The recipe just as it is is fabulous! I will be making this quite often! It certainly can be substituted for a light meal during our long hot summers...thank you. Read More

I used 1/2 cup of mozzarella cubes instead of the provolone. Next time I'm going to double the amount of artichoke hearts (wife likes those the best). I changed the olives to Lindsay green olives sliced in half and used a half a can. I just used about a teaspoon of dried basil and a teaspoon of dried oregano instead of the fresh basil. I mixed all the ingredients together before I mixed in the vinaigrette. I think that makes sure everything doesn't clump together. Turned out really great! Read More

I really liked this recipe! I usually take the easy route and just use a bottle of zesty Italian dressing. However this is definitely better. Thank you for sharing! Read More
