I adjusted the recipe just a bit - skipped the onion, added freshly ground black pepper, and the second time we made it (and everytime since) we've added either broccoli or asparagus to the pasta cooking water just in time to cook the vegetable before the pasta is done (usually about 3 or 4 minutes). It's great! We've also found we prefer to add just a bit more dressing if we are eating this dish cold later. After serving this to my teenage nephews they too love this dish and make it as a snack (!) prior to their sports practices. If they're out of fresh tomatoes they substitute a 28 ounce can of diced tomatoes (juice and all) if eating the dish hot ... and yes, they too add the broccoli or other veggies.

For a 'main' or lunch dish I thought it was a bit bland. Adding some fresh ground 'mixed' red, pink, white dn black pepper, some fresh roasted garlic added to the salad dressing - and LOTS MORE basil and a touch of Greek Oregano and olive oil seemed to really perk up the overall balance of flavors. I really think the idea is great, just the prepared dressing is good but not in my universe due to the sodium. So I tried freshly made dressing with mostly balsamic vinegar/herbs and a TOUCH of extra extra virgin olive oil and spring water. I guess respicing any low salt/low fat dressing would be good too. Put the tomatoes/onions in the fresh dressing overnight or for a few hours then add the pasta, chill for a while and that's far better. IF you like more salt, add olives or some fresh parmesean or romano cheese to your dressing or vegetables.

My husband and I are very picky eaters, and I don't cook, so rarely do we eat at home...all this to say, I was searching for something healthy and easy to make one weekend, and stumbled upon this recipe. We make this meal once a week if not more-it is enough for 2 days! Delicious, healthy, easy, and a HUGE HIT at dinner parties, served chilled. A must try!!!

Some might like their pasta "al dente" (which translates as "to the tooth" and basically means a little chewy), however, the sauce will make it softer over night if you made extra (as we all do for the next day), anyway. Hot or cold, it still does this. Home made "pasta" is much better, and is easy to make as well, it takes less cooking time to boil. It's done in like from 1 to 3 minutes. To bad there's not a "recipe" here to make fresh pasta as well from scratch. That would be nice, right ?.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This recipe was so easy and quick to prepare. This recipe was so easy and quick to prepare. Very Very good, however it wasn't salty enough for my taste so I added a little kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper, which made it even better. I also, used less tomatoes (6) as suggested by another reviewer and it was plenty. Next time I think I will add a little more fresh basil though. This was so easy and good I am planning on taking it to my family reunion soon. Thank you Kraft for all your great recipes!

For those of you complaining about this being called a no-cook receipe when you clearly have to cook the pasta... Haven't any of you ever cooked pasta in the microwave??? It's really simple. Throw the pasta in a large bowl, drizzle with olive oil, fill the bowl with enough water to cover the pasta, and cook in the microwave for 10-20 minute's, depending on the densitity of the noodle. No need to heat up the oven/stove on a hot day.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from How is this a "no cook" recipe when you have to cook the pasta? How is this a "no cook" recipe when you have to cook the pasta? Right now in Oklahoma it is well over 107 degrees during the day, and any kind of indoor cooking at my house is off limits. Grill only, or microwave. I will probably try this when it cools off a little, but when I see "no cook" I assume it will not involve the stove or oven.

When I made this recipe, I thought I would have leftovers for the next day, I was wrong! I added a yellow bell pepper just for color. The next time I made it I left out the pasta & added a cucumber, yellow bell pepper & served it cold and served it as a side dish. My family loved it. A very refreshing, can do ahead treat!
