If you have trouble finding Kraft Sun-Dried Tomato Vinaigrette Dressing, it might be because it's just shown on the packaging as Sun-Dried Tomato Dressing. At least, that's what I used--and it was delicious; my family loved it. I made only half a batch in case we didn't care for it, but I wish I had made the whole thing! I substituted whole grain spiral pasta and asparagus for the bow tie and broccoli. I will definitely make it again soon.

It taste delicious and even those are skeptical of the whole wheat pasta dug in heartily due to all the fresh vegtables, wonderful dressing, and cheese combination of flavors. I also omitted the onion, substituted in cucumber, did half-and-half broccoli and cauliflower combination and added about 1/4 - 1/2 cup of mozzerella cheese - it was fantastic!

I made a few modifications: Subsituted yellow pepper for the red pepper (the yellow pepper added to the wonderful color of this dish) Subsituted grape tomatoes for cherry tomatoes (left whole) Added 3 oz. sliced olives (no pieces) This is a great dish for any summertime event!

I have been looking for a really good and easy pasta salad for so long & now I have found it! I didn't use as much cheese only 2 oz. I also had to substitute the dressing with another sun dried tomato dressing because I couldn't find the Kraft brand but it was still great!

I added black olives and substituted 2 cups of Kraft Crumbled Italian Cheeses for the Parmesan and used a whole 16 oz. bottle of Kraft Lite Done Right Zesty Italian Dressing. It was super tasty. I also skipped the step about putting the broccoli in the pasta water...I don't like my broccoli mushy. It was super tasty and I got lots of compliments.

I made this the night before and refrigerated to merry all the flavors together. My only setback was that I could not find the Sundried tomato dressing, so I substituted Italian dressing. This salad is good for a quick side dish or if added protein, a nice summer meal.

I was leary at trying a new recipe on a group of people but they all loved it. I had two families request to take some home as leftovers. I didn't change anything in the recipe but I think I would add cucumbers next time. It was delicious! Everyone loved the dressing.
