This is my favorite cold pasta salad. I'll eat it every day, every meal, until its gone. I love the dill and add more than the recipe suggests. This will feed an army. The number of servings is set at 8 but it seems more to me. I usually half the recipe unless I'm doing it for a potluck or company. Refrigeration time is not included in preparation or cook time.
