What a wonderful recipe for a hot afternoon. Good strong flavors, simple dressing, fresh can you go wrong?

This is easily worth 5 stars. The flavours are full but not heavy- the tomato and basil blends beautifully with the vinaigrette. Already planning to make it again! I did make one change- I left out the red onion as I find the flavour too strong. Thanks for a recipe I'll make over and over!

I loved this fresh tasting pasta salad! I omitted the onions for DH and used colored pasta shells. It was absolutely delicious! Thanks!
