    Lisa1's Note:

    Quick to make pasta salad. This is one of my main-stay potluck recipes. Sometimes I use 3/4 cup chopped roasted red peppers in place of tomatoes.

      This was great! I made this as a side dish for burger night, and I plan on making it again for an upcoming potluck. I used cherry tomatoes too. (I love the sweet taste with pesto)

      Five stars! This was absolutely delicious. I took this to a picnic on a warm day when a mayonnaise-based would have not kept well. I only brought back one very small serving--it was a huge hit! We want to make it again, and add chicken, to make it a main dish. Thank you for the recipe!

      This was very good. I used Super Basil Pesto (Healthy Version), spinach cheese tortellini, and (because I needed to use it) havarti instead of mozzarella. Enjoyed it for lunch today, warmed up a bit in the microwave (just to take the chill off). Thanks for the recipe!
