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.

This was great! Very light and fresh pasta salad. I gave it four stars since I didn't follow the recipe exactly. At the last minute I realized I didn't have an Italian dressing packet so I upped the pesto and added juice from one lemon instead.
