This was really good! We have lots of basil and I was looking for something that would be light for a summer supper. I didn't have any italian dressing so I used Bev's Italian Dressing #43522. I must have been heavy on the basil as my dressing was green not like the picture I used the Barilla PLUS penne which is a 14 1/2 oz. box so I used the whole cup of Italian dressing that Bev's recipe used. My husband doesn't like black olives so I left them out. I topped it with imitation crab for him and he was a happy camper. Thanks for a great recipe.
absolutely fantastic! i added shredded chicken
Made this with a few things added. However it was great as is.
I ADDED green olives,artichoke heart, plus hreen pimento too. It was great!!
Love this easy summer salad that really takes advantage of fresh basil.
This is a great, easy pasta salad. We prefer it the day it's made. If you want it for the next day, be prepared to add a little more salad dressing, as the pasta really soaks it up.
I loved this recipe! Really easy and so good- I couldn't stay out of the leftovers in my fridge. The first time I made it, I didn't have enough fresh basil so I threw in some dried and it was still great!
This really was super easy to make! John and I love pasta salads and this is a great addition to our collection. It is a very zippy pasta salad. Thank you!
This made a nice lunch. I cheated a little and used store bought pesto instead of using the fresh basil leaves(I couldn't find any). I used rotina(corkscrew)pasta. Thank you Spookygirl.
