"Quick, easy, and tasty. I needed a last minute pot luck dish, and these are items we all usually have on hand. The only thing I added was some sliced olives...." See more"
"Excellent! It's really beyond me why this recipe has only 3.5 stars because it is really wonderful. The lemon zest and basil give it a wonderful fresh, vibrant flavor and I don't recommend omitting ei..." See morether one. I used farfalle instead of penne and added black olives. I'll definitely make this again; my husband and I really enjoyed it. Give it a try! Thanks :)"
"Suggestion: Needs a little color, so add red/green/yellow peppers OR broccoli florets OR peas. I doubled the dressing. I'm keeping this recipe around because it looks like a more sophisticated salad..." See more (because of the artichoke hearts and chick peas), but it's actually quick-from-the-pantry and easy as can be!"
