Rated 4 out of 5 by from I have made this recipe twice, and was a hit both times. I have made this recipe twice, and was a hit both times. I used fresh green beans, and next time I will garbanzo beans instead of the northern beans. Great Protein, and delish!! Different than usual mac salad at summer time.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Even better the next day! Even better the next day! I loved this salad - I was making it for a smaller group, so I cut it in half and used only the kidney beans so I didn't have to open 2 cans - I can't wait to try it again with both.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from It's a good pasta salad. It's a good pasta salad. Not a great pasta salad. Beans tend to overwhelm the pasta, so I would classify this as more of a bean salad than a macaroni salad. It's good, but not something I'd make again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very yummy! Very yummy! I used just a 1/4 cup of Mayo and substituted 1/4 cup of fat free Greek yogurt for the rest. This is an excellent alternative to the traditional macaroni salad.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from This was a hit! This was a hit! I used a light mayo, Zesty LITE dressing and penne rigate instead of elbow. The recipe has been asked for and passed along!
