What a tasty easy dinner. I left out the hot sauce and swapped out mushrooms and cherry tomatoes for the bell peppers, and I think you could really switch things up depending on what you like and what is in the house. The sauce was delicious, though I decided it needed a full recipe of sauce even though I cut the rest of the ingredients in half. I tried it as-is for my first helping, but added some shredded parmesan and chopped pecans to my seconds, and liked it a bit more that way.

This made a very filling and delicious dinner last evening. I didn't have the red pepper but it was still more than wort the making. An excellent variety of veggies and flavors that are most satisfying, So glad that I gave this a try and I'll be making it again.

With the ingredients for this salad already in my kitchen, putting this salad together was so easy! I actually fixed a double batch so that my other half could have some to take to work the next day, & I'd have a bit to eat as well! Thanks for this wonderful pasta salad recipe!
