      I loved this recipe! Followed the recipe exactly and the only thing I would do differently is add salt and pepper. It was nice to find a recipe that does not make such a large amount for just my husband and myself. Now I know I can double or triple as needed. The parmesan added so much to the dressing and the fresh basil was perfect!

      I think this salad was good, and probably will use at as inspiration in the future, but this recipe did have some draw backs in my opinion. First, the goods are: appearance, simplicity and variety. It was colorful, easy to make, and had several delicious veggies, including one of my faves (broccoli). I also found it was not bland, which often can be a problem in pasta salads. I made the exact recipe, and served it to four adults, and it was barely sufficient to give everyone a decent sized serving. There were no left overs, and if I were serving this to 5-6 or more people, I would double the recipe. It wasn't quite as creamy as I like, and I would advise adding slightly more milk.

      So fresh and wonderful tasting! I was wondering and wondering when I could find a tasty, lower calorie wonderful tasting pasta salad that included veggies and I found it. I followed this exactly, even cutting down the mayo by a teaspoon, and used low fat sour cream. So fresh and tasty you would of thought you had gone to the beach on a picnic. Added a bit of red-pepper-flakes just for the heck of it. Thanks for posting!
