      Yummy! I made a half recipe because that's what I had ingredients for. The only change I made was to use frozen corn. I also skipped the parmesan as it didn't need it for my taste. This made for a super quick and tasty dinner. Thanks for the recipe Bev!

      Delightful summer pasta salad. I made this tonight and my family loved it. I did use turkey pepperoni instead of the prosciutto as it was what I had on hand - and I also didn't read the recipe far enough and had already drained the pasta before reading I needed to reserve a bit to mix in so I added a little bit of Italian herbed red wine vinegar and olive oil to keep it moist in place. This ia a fabulous and fast salad with great fresh flavors that we will continue to make! Thanks Bev!!
