"i've had pasta salads before and never really cared for them because i found them too oily and sour for my taste. i was tempted to make this recipe because it had vegetables in it which i found intere..." See moresting. this recipe turned out to be really good. i used skinless chicken breast instead of turkey. i also used grated parmesan cheese instead of cheddar. i thought about making my own italian dressing but decided to use paul newman's family recipe instead. i also used hormel's real bacon instead of making my own bacon bits."

The longest part of the whole thing was cooking the bacon, which gives you an idea how quick this throws together. The only thing I might've changed would be to season my turkey a little more as it was cooking, or maybe cut it in to even smaller pieces before putting it in the salad to soak up more flavor. This recipe will definitely get pulled out again when the unused frozen veggies and leftovers start to add up!"
