I love love love this pastas salad. There is a deli in my town that used to sell my favorite pasta salad almost identical to this and I was so sad when they closed. Now I can make it at home!

This was awesome! And I am very picky about pasta salads! I used regular provolone instead of the smoked and used ground mustard instead of Dijon because I don't like it. Turned out very very good! This tasted great! One of my favorite pasta salads of all time.

Very good. I made a few changes but that's what is so great about pasta salads - versatility! I used whole-wheat rotini, left out the black olives, cut the oil amount to a little over 1/3 cup, and added more parmesan. Very tasty!
