Instead of an italian dressing, I used a homemade Dorothy Lynch Style Salad dressing that I found on this site. I made no other changes. I made this the night before and portioned it out for lunches for my husband and I--we both really liked it. He asked me to make it again soon but to add chicken next time. This recipe's a keeper. REALLY good. NOTE: The longer it sits, the better it gets.

I love a good taco pasta salad. I made this, but instead of Italian dressing (I really dislike Italian dressing) I used sour cream mixed with a little milk. Otherwise I kept it the same. My 4 year old even loved it!
