This is a wonderful pasta salad. The only thing that I added differently than the recipe calls for is dill weed and instead of plain yogurt I used fat-free sour cream since I had already had it on hand. I love dill and add it to almost any salad with seafood in it. I also doubled the servings. Even if i didn't add the dill weed, this dish still would have been absolutely wonderful. Thank you for a great recipe.
