I came up with this recipe when trying to find something to take to a potluck BBQ picnic. I wanted something cheap to make that would satisfy and serve a bunch of people. So far on my initial taste tests, it is wonderful! It's spicy, but light, with many beautiful colors, tastes and textures. It does not have a heavy dressing, I'm not usually fond of pasta salads as the dressings always seem to vinegary to me, this is just right. You can vary the ingredients, by adding artichoke hearts, any kind of onions from scallions to purple onions, any additional veggies (cucumber, celery) or any pasta you prefer, cheese would also be a good addition. I tried to not make this too spicy since it was a Boy Scout function feeding a lot of kids. It should go over big, (I hope). These amounts make a ton, so if it's for fewer people, you may want to halve these amounts.
