    HokiesMom's Note:

    I cannot remember where I found this recipe but this is one of the first pasta salads I made after moving out on my own and my Mom gave me rave reviews. I use asparagus in the spring when it is fresh and the broccoli when I cannot find nice fresh asparagus.

      My fussy eater loved it! I used green onions and added grilled chicken.

      This was a very nice and fresh pasta salad! I really liked the addition of the pineapples. I left out the onions (personal preference), otherwise made as specified. Next time I think I'll use some hot sauce instead of basil in the dressing for a little extra zip. Thanks for posting this yummy recipe!
