Very good and easy to make. I made this up one night and let it sit and ate it for lunch the next day. Nice flavor. I followed the recipe as written other then I used Dreamfield pasta as that is what I buy. I also had cooked ham instead of honey ham and my dressing was not reduced fat. I also used shredded cheese instead of crumbles. Was a nice lunch.
