FANTASTIC!!! This has to be one of the best pasta salads that I have made, but I do advise to start w/ just one packet of dried Italian dressing mix and go from there (one was all I used and it was perfect for us). I also used one packet to make the dressing that was used in the salad. I grated my parmesan fresh (maybe used a little more than called for, lol), and I think that made a HUGE difference, so definitely do that. I had no fresh mozz. on hand, so I used block and that was fine, but I can't wait to try it w/ the fresh. Hubby commented several times on how much he liked this, so that's saying something. I will def be making this often~YUM! Thanks for sharing. :)

Loved it! This pasta salad was a HUGE hit with my guys. I know it is because it had meat in it! I used 1 cup of store brought Italian salad dressing. I did omit the olives, as we don’t care for them. I started with 1 – 7oz. pkg. of dry Italian dressing, and it added enough flavor for us, so I did omit the other 2 packages. This is a salad that improves in flavor the longer it has a chance to meld. It lasted great for a few days to pack in lunches. That is big in this house, as we have 3 people who pack almost every day. This will be a “used often” recipe to have for summer cookouts.
