I used penne pasta. The recipe contains a bit too much oil. Next time I will use less olive oil in the salad dressing but add more pesto.

Yummy! I made this just as described. So good! I will make this next month for my family reunion. I can't wait to share it!

My husband loved this salad. As other reviewers suggested, I added the salad dressing to taste. I also added an extra can of artichokes. This is a great recipe for a summer potluck.
