    ~SarahBeth~'s Note:

    This is from the Southern Living 5 Star Recipe Collection cookbooks. My mom has them and this is my favorite recipe out of the collection. It's so pretty for a luncheon or even a picnic -- sometimes I eat it for lunch. The presentation is so pretty with the tri-color rotini but sometime I just use whatever pasta I have on hand. I also double the dressing because I like a lot. The whole recipe also doubles very easily! Also for the ham I use lunch meat ham or the John Morrell's cubed ham. Enjoy! Chill time not included in cook time.

      Made this for a neighborhood potluck & it was a huge success! There were 5 couples there, & I kind of expected to have some left over, but no such luck! Followed your recipe right on down & was very happy with the results! I'll definitely be making this one again, for sure! Thanks for sharing the recipe! [Tagged & made in Please Review My Recipe]

      This is really good! Made as is except left out the olives (next time will try some green olives). The dressing has a nice mellow flavor too it and was just wet enough for us (didn't double the dressing). Will be making for an upcoming family BBQ!) Made for Everyday Holiday 4/2010.

      SarahBeth, we love this recipe. So easy and versatile as well! First time I made it almost exactly as is, other than leaving out the ham. On your advice I doubled the dressing, and my youngest daughter would even have liked a little more dressing than that! Second time I made it (on her request) but had to use wholewheat fusilli, both girls agree, much better with the tri-colour fusilli. I still left out the ham, and added frozen corn, a finely chopped green pepper, and a finely chopped carrot. (Actually, I added those veg first time too). I stuck to doubling the dressing. This has become an overnight favourite for my youngest, I made this second lot for her to take back to varsity with her, and gave her the recipe as well! Easily and quickly prepared, I was really happy to have found this recipe. Thank you! Made for PRMR tag game.
