This makes a delicious pasta salad, just perfect for the hot weather we've been getting. I did scale the recipe to half, because of the small number of diners, and made a few changes with the salad ingredients - only two types of cheese, only one kind of sausage, no chives - but tried to maintain proportions, and didn't make any other changes. Thank you very much for posting this recipe. I'm very glad I tried it.
