The best pasta salad I've had! My mother-in-law's recipe, improved! This is always a hit when I have company over. It definitely tastes better the next day, and keeps well in the fridge! I vary the types of peppers I put in it (orange, yellow, red all add nice colors). I also use different cheeses, my favorite is smoked mozzarella.
