The ingredients and technique in this recipe are really good together. I really like the taste of the vegetables cooked in the dressing. I think this would be excellent hot, and it's pretty good cold too! I found that I didn't need to add any more dressing to the salad, the juices from the vegetables were enough. I did add parmesan cheese and about 1/4 cup of shredded mozzerella cheese. My problem with the recipe was that there was no ingredient amounts listed. I used 2 regular tomatoes, 1/2 a zucchini and 1/2 an onion. K}I used about 6 button mushrooms that I quartered. I used about 1/2 a lb dried pasta. I used ziti instead, since that's what was on hand. Had the ingredients been listed more clearly, and the diretions more specific, this would have been a five-star recipe! Thanks so much, I've really enjoyed it!
