"This was wonderful for guests. It seemed like a little too much pasta for the amount of veggies, so I might cut that back a bit next time. Lacking champagne vinegar I used balsamic, which was tasty ..." See moretoo. It was great the next day for leftovers."
"I was asked to make this recipe for a party by the hostess. I was a little leary, but one taste and it is now a favorite of all of ours. The dressing ingredients are great...." See more"
"This was pretty bland. Lacking something. There was too much pasta for the amount of veggies, and I doubled the amount of peppers. And it was a boring dish. But if you put some blue cheese dressing in..." See more it, it gives it that extra something and it tastes so much better. With the blue cheese dressing I would change my vote from a two to a four.
