Unlike the other reviews, I used the full amt of everything and thought it came out perfect! Gave 4 stars instead of 5 just because there should be more green colored veggies in it to make it more appetizing. But other than that, the dressing amt was good for us. Will make it again sometime.

Tasty salad, but would definitely use half the amount of pasta (16 ounces, NOT 32 ounces) - even for 7 servings! I also used half the amount of Italian salad dressing (8 ounces) instead of the 16 ounces. I may try this recipe again.

This was good after I altered the amount of dressing. I would use about half of the amount stated in the recipe. I made it with the full amount first and the dressing was overpowering. When I made it the second time with half the dressing it was delicious.
