I did not have gorgonzola cheese, I substituted equal amounts bleu cheese. I used chopped chicken thigh meat (discounted meat sale) added a little more chopped green onion and some fresh ground pepper. I made this last night so it would have time to sit over night. VERY tasty pasta salad. NOTE: I buy my jarred roasted red pepper at the Dollar Tree. Cheap and tastes just as good as the expensive brands!




Very simple summer salad, and flavorful! I added green peas and red onion, used raw red pepper instead of the roasted red peppers, and substituted yogurt for half the mayo ... but those are small changes ... The recipe would work well as written. We also ate it before chilling (couldn't wait!).
