Each time we have a picnic or a family function, everyone
begs me to make it. We had a Navy family picnic to go to,
and I made it. I sat back and watched as the people were
lined up for a taste of it. I didn't write our name on
the bowl and I didn't tell anyone I made it. I overheard
husbands tell their wives to find out who made it and get
the recipe. By the time lunch was over, the HUGE bowl of
pasta salad was completely gone while the rest of the
pasta dishes still sat **giggles** It kinda made me feel proud that it
was well liked and I didn't have to throw it all out.
Make It A Meal: Serve with
a Marinated Steak like The Outback's®
Unfortunately, no one liked this at an open house party I gave
I did try
this recipe but I left out the peas and the spinach. It was an excellent
recipe and I *highly* recommend it. It was a refreshing recipe. It was
quick and easy. Even my daughter who hates tomatoes, enjoyed the pasta
dish. She now uses it for her family too. I give it 2 thumbs up!
