I am not partial to pasta salad, but my husband is,and this one is the only one I truly like.It's from a cookbook titled The Pasta Salad Cookbook. The only changes I made was to slice the mushrooms thickly,and add some Parmesan while mixing it for the final time - and of course, add more to my serving.

Hello! :) I made this for dinner last night. It was just me, so I had something great for lunch today. This was so easy and very delicious! I had some mushrooms to use up, and I came upon your recipe. The only thing I forgot to use was the parmesan cheese when it was done and tossed. This would be great cold, I think. This is going in my Just For Me and Past, Pasta! coobooks. Thank you for the awesome dinner.
