Great recipe. When I re-read the ingredients prior to rating this recipe, I realized that I omitted the parmesan ... but it was great without it. Love the freshness of the tomatoes and basil. This is a great summer salad.

I really wanted to like this pasta salad, but there was way too much garlic and it wasn't "saucy" enough. Next time I'll cut the garlic, use juicer tomatoes, and more olive oil.

Made for an Aussie Christmas lunch (It's hot over here!). Lovely simple recipe to make with fresh flavours that could easily be built upon. Thanks Manda.

Great recipe for using my tomatoes and basil from the garden. I added a splash of Tuscan House Italian dressing to punch up the flavor.

WOW! This is a great pasta salad. So simple. I'm so surprised because it has so few ingredients, I really didn't expect much, but it is super yummy! I'll make this often, thanks for sharing.

I served this salad for a dinner on Labor Day and it was great...I had tons of cherry tomaotes and basil in my garden and this was a perfect recipe...so simple but yet tasted like you slaved all day...

I didn't have tomatoes, but I used red pepper and it tasted really good! Next time I will have tomatoes on hand and will make this for certain. You can't go wrong!

Excellent recipe. I've done it twice now, and all the seasonings for the dressing are just right. There is nothing like the taste of fresh basil. I did, however, omit the cheese (I hate any type of cheese and added a little fresh oregano from my garden). The second time I made this for a party, but I switched out the tomatoes for red & orange bell peppers and everyone loved it. Good job with this.
