    This is our new favorite mayo-based pasta salad. What could be easier than using pesto from a jar?

      I was chosen to bring a salad to an office potluck and thought this might be nice for a change. Everyone raved over this! Next time I'll double it. BTW, I followed the recipe to the tee and didn't even notice the lemon juice. Respectfully, maybe the other person used too much. Couldn't find Classico pesto, so I used Flora. This really was delicious. Also, instructions were very clear for ingredient cooking times. This will be a staple next summer.

      I doubled the recipe to take this salad to a family BBQ. I found the lemon juice overpowered the dressing and i had to add some additonal mayo to make it taste better. I used epicure selections pesto mix made as directed and it worked well.
