      I used a pound of mini penne and only one bottle of dressing. I followed the rest of the recipe as written other then I didn't add the onion, salt, pepper or garlic powder. I didn't measure my pepper and cucs either. I just added two peppers and two cucumbers. We all enjoyed this.

      I used 1lb of the pasta (that's what size the container is where I live??) Anyway, I also used 1 pint of grape tomato cut in halves, I used a whole seedless cucumber, a whole green pepper, 1 can of lack olives 1/2 sliced and 1/2 chopped, 1 container of kraft shredded parm, asiago & romano cheese. I couldn't find "house" italian so I used zesty. We never even had to open the second bottle of dressing. I think it may be because I had less pasta and way more veges than were called for, but it was great this way. Wonderful recipe, try it with extra veges and less pasta!

      This was great. The flavor was wonderful. I did forget to put the seasonings in and it still came out just right. The next day, with the leftovers I sauted up some cubed chicken breasts, then added the leftover pasta salad, extra dressing and cheese and had a whole new dinner. Great way to use up the leftovers.
