I also did a spin off of this. I used shell noodles, brocoli, and grape tomatoes. But for the dressing part I mixed some miracle whip, ranch dressing packet, some sour cream, parmesan , and pepper... Loved the mix of flavors. Vegetable Parmesan Pepper Pasta salad!!! MMMMMM!!!
And another realitive made a similar pasta salad ... but My version was the first to go!! Hers sat on the table all night!!!! An empty dish speaks for itself!!
