    A great quick-and-easy pasta salad for lunch or a light dinner. I definitely added the balsamic vinegar - about 1 T. for each 2 T. of oil. Also great with mozzarella cheese chunks!

    Nice, fresh pasta dish. I zipped it up with pepper jack cheese instead of white cheddar. Also, I used some red wine vinegar. Maybe next time I'll try it with balsamic vinegar, like another reviewer did.

    Loved this recipe very much. I added the balsamic vinegar and felt it was still missing something. I had a bottle of lime basil vinegrette and added about 1/4 cup. I felt the citrus added the perfect touch. I also used grape tomatoes instead of a large tomato and used fresh sweet basil. This was just so good. I used red pepper flakes for the dried chili. Thanks for posting. I know I will make this many times.

    We liked this a lot! I opted for the dried dill, due to not being able to find any fresh basil at the market. I also added some cucumber and used mozzarella cheese. Tasted great. I added balsamic vinegar, about 3-4 Tablespoons, because I like the tang. Thanks a lot!
