Rated 5 out of 5 by from This recipe is delicious and better, still, easy to make. This recipe is delicious and better, still, easy to make. I used 3/4 lb. of penne, 1 pint of cherry tomaoes, halved, instead of 3 whole tomatoes, 3-cheese crumbles instead of Italian as my local grocer did not carry the Italian and Kraft Robust Italian instead of light. It was a hit at the party I attended and many people requested the recipe. No extra ingredients necessary for this great pasta salad!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I made this for the 4th of July. I made this for the 4th of July. Thought we could try something different. Instead of tomatoes I used a jar of Italian Style Roasted Red Peppers. I also could not find the cheese it called for so I went without. By the time we left the party there was very little left....and that was finished just before midnight.

OUTSTANDING recipe, I used 2 tomatoes instead of 3 like the reviews recommended and it turned out wonderfully. Do not salt this, as the Italian dressing gives it enough kick. Wonderful recipe, I ate it warm and it was great. Cold was very good as well. I will DEFINITELY be making this again!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from I have tried this twice - the 2nd time, I added crumbled feta cheese (instead of the Italian cheese)... I have tried this twice - the 2nd time, I added crumbled feta cheese (instead of the Italian cheese) & cucumbers and omitted the basil- absolutely awesome. The Zesty Italian dressing is a must!! This is at it's best when it can be refrigerated for several hours.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from This salad was good. This salad was good. I had to add more salad dressing than the recipe said because the salad was dry. But after I added the extra dressing the salad was really good. Next time I think I will add some black olives for a different taste.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This is the easiest, tastiest Italian pasta salad recipe I have ever come across. This is the easiest, tastiest Italian pasta salad recipe I have ever come across. This is one of my favorite summer dishes. I did tweak it a little by using corkscrew pasta in place of penne. It's just a personal preference.
