My sister-in-law gave me this recipe years ago. It is the only pasta recipe I really like, and my daughter is always asking me to make it. She prefers more favor, so she adds additional zesty Italian salad dressing to her serving.

We have updated this recipe to correct the amount of Old Bay seasoning called for in the ingredient list.

This is a wonderful pasta salad! I added chopped tomatoes and onions, and used Asiago cheese instead of Monterey Jack (it was what I had on hand). Using vegetable rotini also adds lots of color. Thanks, Linda!

Really good pasta salad. Made for a family get together and it was inhaled! I left out the cheese cubes and added some grape tomaotes I cut in half, 1/4 of a large green pepper and just a little minced vadalia onion. I've made this pasta salad before without the Old Bay, but I really like the addition of it. Made it a little spicy but it wasn't so much that my 2 year old couldn't eat it. Delicious!
