Rated 2 out of 5 by from It tasted like pasta in mayonnaise. It tasted like pasta in mayonnaise. After tasting it and not liking it, I added some Italian dressing, which helped it some. I noticed someone commented in the reviews that they used olive oil instead - that is a great idea! I'm going to try that next time. The zucchini, pepperoni and black olives is a great combination in a pasta salad, it's just the heavy mayonnaise flavor I didn't like. I will say that it tasted better the second day than it did the first. Maybe it needs more than 1 hour to refrigerate before the flavors really meld. I put it in the refrigerator for about 3 hours before eating it, but the second day was really when it started tasting better.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I made a few tiny changes to the original recipe. I made a few tiny changes to the original recipe. I cut the pepperoni into quarters instead of leaving them in whole slices. I cut the zucchini into fairly thin slices, then into strips. I put in two small cans of black olives thinking that would be good, but I won't do that next time, it's too much. I added a couple more spoonfuls of mayo also. This is a really good pasta salad, it's my new favorite, and my kids love it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from totally yummy! totally yummy! I used the cucumbers instead of zucinni, too. And for a lttle extra flavor, I added a packet of zesty italian dressing mix. I made it as a dish to take to church, but wound up dividing it so that I could have some here at the house!

I thought this tasted good, I added some chunk cheese, which I thought was awesome in there, but I made it for a family party of 15 and said to say, no one else liked it. I have tons of leftovers.
