Made this recipe pretty much as given, although I did leave out the optional mint AND was a bit generous with the orange zest! Absolutely loved the pasta in combination with the cheese & fruits! Very, very refreshing, & Will certainly be making it again! Thanks for sharing the recipe! [Made & reviewed in Everyday Is a Holiday recipe tag]
