This is a great pasta salad, light and refreshing and a great family favorite! Has Catalina and Italian dressing, veggies and vinegar that gives it that zing! This is best when prepared the day before to get the full flavor!

This is a wonderful summertime side dish with all of its fresh veggies. The dressing is sweet and tangy -- a nice change from the mayo based versions. My only gripe is that the prep time is a lot longer than stated. I knew it would be as I wanted to take the extra time too to cut things up nice and small so it would be visually appealing. The pasta also holds up great with this dressing. Definitely make the night before so all of the flavors have a chance to really soak in.

My husband and I enjoyed this pasta dish. It has great flavor like no other pasta salad we have had. I used Paul Newman's Italian dressing with it and it was great. I hope others will enjoy this dish also.
