      This was really good! I made a couple slight changes, in the spirit of the Dining on a $ Contest, to save $$ and use things I had on hand. I had 1/2 a portobello mushroom so used that instead of the bell pepper, salami instead of pepperoni, and Monterey jack cheese instead of mozzarella. I had some homemade Italian dressing mix on hand so used that and didn't use the whole can of olives (seemed like too much to me). Thanks so much for the recipe - I will definitely make it again!

      This is really tasty! I liked the Italian dressing for this pasta salad, it had great flavor! I could see making this with any type pasta, not just ramen noodles! I will make this recipe combo again, thanks!!!!

      Very nice tasting dish. I tried to lower the fat amount by using turkey pepperoni and low fat mayo. This really does have a nice pizza taste to it. You want to make sure that all your ingredients are ready to toss together before you cook the noodles. That way you still have a nice warm dish to eat. I was even thinking about zapping it in the microwave to help melt the cheese. I couldn't taste the Italian salad dressing, so not sure if it really was needed. All the other great flavors took over. Made for dining on a $ cooking contest.

      This colorful pasta salad is very pretty in the bowl and simple to make. One key element is to not overcook the noodles. I microwaved mine for two minutes & they were almost too soft for a salad. I used a zesty italian mix & thought the dressing was overly tart, but it might have been due to the brand. Other than that the salad was easy to make, had a nice combo of ingredients, and was ready in minutes. I appreciated the tip on using kitchen shears to cut the noodles. I will use this tip in the future. Thank you for your contest entry!
