      An absolutely delicious salad! I made it yesterday for a 4th of July picnic, and my family loved it. The oil and seasonings added a light flavoring, allowing most of the taste to come from the fresh veggies and pasta. I chose to use fresh basil leaves and elbow macaroni, and I swapped the avocado for a cucumber and included a small can of sliced black olives with jalapeno peppers. I also used pepper jack cheddar cheese, which added a delightful spiciness to the salad. Thanks for sharing this recipe; I will use it again!

      This recipe works just great. I used penne rigate pasta because I couldn't find the rotini, Cantal cheese in place of the cheddar, and opted for the fresh basil. My family gobbled it up. I served them bbq chicken too, but this seems hearty enough for a vegetarian meal. I liked that all it has for dressing is olive oil letting the yummy veggies shine through.

      A great quick-and-easy pasta salad for lunch or a light dinner. I definitely added the balsamic vinegar - about 1 T. for each 2 T. of oil. Also great with mozzarella cheese chunks!

      Nice, fresh pasta dish. I zipped it up with pepper jack cheese instead of white cheddar. Also, I used some red wine vinegar. Maybe next time I'll try it with balsamic vinegar, like another reviewer did.

      Loved this recipe very much. I added the balsamic vinegar and felt it was still missing something. I had a bottle of lime basil vinegrette and added about 1/4 cup. I felt the citrus added the perfect touch. I also used grape tomatoes instead of a large tomato and used fresh sweet basil. This was just so good. I used red pepper flakes for the dried chili. Thanks for posting. I know I will make this many times.

      We liked this a lot! I opted for the dried dill, due to not being able to find any fresh basil at the market. I also added some cucumber and used mozzarella cheese. Tasted great. I added balsamic vinegar, about 3-4 Tablespoons, because I like the tang. Thanks a lot!
