This was a tasty spaghetti salad. I cooked off a pound of spaghetti but only used about half because I thought it looked like to much spaghetti compared to the rest of the ingredients. I used 16 ounces of zesty Italian dressing. I'm not a fan of raw onions so I used a yellow and an orange pepper. I also used more parm cheese then the recipe called for. I used about four tablespoons of fresh grated parm cheese. I also omitted the dill and salt. We all enjoyed this.

Great salad! The only change I made was to use green onions instead of white and I added more veggies than called for. I took it to school to share with my colleagues and they really liked it! Thanks for sharing this quick and healthy recipe, Parsley. ***Made for Spring PAC 2012***
