    Great pasta salad! I omitted the argula. My husband didn't care for the sundried tomatoes since they were the consistency of prunes he said, but I enjoyed the dish overall, esp. since I enjoy Mediterranean-style dishes. This is a keeper!  -  28 Mar 2002  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    this was so easy and delicious. I substituted baby spinach for arugula. Had it warm for dinner and cold as left-overs. great  -  15 Aug 2005  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    This is a fantastic salad, so pleasing. Instead of farfale, I used Orzo - I found it to soak up the flavor and be pleasing to the tongue. The vegetables taste so good, and the sun-dried tomatoes make it authentic. A brilliant addition to any bar-b-que this summer.  -  05 May 2002  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
