I cut this recipe down to serve just two of us for lunch. I did everything as the recipe says but I found it was just missing a little flavor for me. Perhaps it needed more basil or something. It's a very quick recipe to put together though and nice and colorful. Made it before leaving for work and we had it for lunch. Thanks for sharing your recipe appleydappply.

Wow - this was delicious! I had to use tricolor rotini, because I thought I had small shells in my pantry and I didn't. It still worked out fine. The dressing was delicate and delightful. I used small shrimp (because I had to use up what I had). I made this to bring to work for lunch during the week and it has been so satisfying. I will be making this again and again!

I am rating without stars for now because I screwed up a bit. When I scanned the recipe for ingredients I didn't catch that I needed a cup of fresh basil which I didn't have. So I used about 1 1/2 tsp of dried basil which I know does not compare to fresh. So, I had to doctor this up for more flavour by adding garlic and lemon pepper and some dried oregano. Let me tell you, it was still AWESOME. I can't wait to make this properly with the fresh basil. Thx for sharing your recipe appleydapply. When I make this again with the fresh basil, I will come back to re-rate it. The colours in the salad are so pretty too.

I made this delicious pasta salad with small shell pasta as suggested, scaled back to two serves for tomorrow's take-to-work lunch, but I have sampled it. WOW! :) Fabulously flavoursome. If you enjoy seafood, this is a MUST-TRY recipe. And as it looks so elegant, it's certainly also a dish I'll be keeping in mind for serving to guests. Loved the blend of flavours in the dressing. Like KITTENCAL, I added some garlic (because we love our garlic and because it blended so well with the other flavours here). I used kalamata olives as that's what I always use and always have on hand. This is, I know already, going to become a favourite dish. Thank you so much for sharing it. Made for 1-2-3 Hit Wonders.

A taste of heaven on a fork! I followed this exactly, except added some red tomatoes, chopped because I was out of red pepper, but did add green pepper. I used a rotini and this held the wonderful dressing, that was even better because of the lemon and the seasonings. Wow, thanks so much appley, easy to make, and great for guests too! Made for *Everyday is a Holiday* January 2009.
