Rated 4 out of 5 by from We have made this a few times now. We have made this a few times now. YUMMY! Couple of things we did: * we took tails off shrimp, too much work to do while eating * the first time we made it, we forgot the cheese, and we loved it so much, we decided not to add it. * we used frozen asparagus spears (trader joe's have the best tasting ones in our opinion) run them under water for a few minutes, cut into pieces, and then put them at the bottom of the colander when rinsing the pasta. * being in the northeast, lemon zest is not cheaply come by, so, in its stead, we used a dash of lemon juice into the mixture.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I do NOT cook and the fear of failure is enormous. I do NOT cook and the fear of failure is enormous. While visiting Montreal my sister received your current magazine. I loved all the ingredients in this item and didn't feel it would be difficult. IT WASN'T and I made it!!!! It was easy, delicious, most attractive and the presentation wonderful. I now look forward to more wonderful challenges in the kitchen. My friends are thrilled for me because they know of my hesitation. Thank you KRAFT. Mary Anne

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I made this recipe for a huge 4th of July party at my brother's house. I made this recipe for a huge 4th of July party at my brother's house. It was so last minute, I went to the grocery store, purcased the couple of items and it was ready for transport in 3 hours. I do suggest mixing in the dressing at the last minute. I doubled the recipe and it was fantastic!! All the extended Italian family members raved about it!! I will be making this again this summer for sure.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from The recipe was very easy to make and everyone enjoyed it. The recipe was very easy to make and everyone enjoyed it. I could not find the 2% crumbles and used shredded cheese instead. I think the crumbles would have been better. I'm not a big fan of italian dressing, but found the Kraft light zesty italian not offensive. I also cut the shrimp in half. I'd definitly make this recipe again. Very filling without the guilt. WW 1cup = 5pts.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from I wasn't sure how it would turn out since I used basil and parsley instead of oregano. I wasn't sure how it would turn out since I used basil and parsley instead of oregano. It turned out great. I added more tomatoes than it called for and used grape instead of cherry one's. Will definetly make again or even think about bringing for a social function, very appealing to the eye!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from This dish was very good. This dish was very good. But I made it as a dish for dinner. Not a good idea. The flavor of the dish is great but you can only eat so much before the taste gets kind of ... old. It would make an excellent dish for a party (as a side dish) but not very good to eat in large quantities.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This is a fabulous pasta salad recipe! This is a fabulous pasta salad recipe! It is different from most and very tasty. I substituted Mrs. Dash Italian blend for the oregano and used Kraft Greek crumbles with feta, provolone and parmesan; it suited the Italian flavors so well. Yummy and super easy! Wow!
