Love this! I have made it several times now and we've eaten every last bite. I love a good healthy recipe, and I use the Barilla Plus pasta to keep this on the healthier side. I never knew uncooked zucchini tasted so good either (better for you, too)!

Really loved this salad. Basil is one of my favorite herbs and the dressing was excellent. I seasoned the salad with salt and pepper before adding the dressing. Only change I made. Very good and something different to have when you are tired of eating the same old thing. Thanks.
