My new favorite! I like to use the mini-farfalle pasta. Tastes great left over, too.
Great colorful pasta salad. I used rainbow fusilli for even more added color. I really expected to be able to taste the Italian dressing mix more, but the dressing was very mellow in flavor, not overwhelming. I used about half the amount of green onions, just personal preference.
Outstanding! And that's from a person who has never liked pasta salads in her life!! I only made the recipe bkz my husband and son love it, so thought I'd give it a go since his parents were visiting. Everyone raved about it and my husband said it just may be the best pasta salad he's ever had. It made a HUGE amount, perfect for a potluck, but consider making half if there are four or less. One note, I did not reserve any dressing... just dumped everything together and it was perfect. :)
