    Just average. It would be better to use mini tortellini (my guests were cutting their tortellini's in half before eating them). I added 1 minced garlic clove and 1 tsp. oregano due to previous comments that the recipe was bland, and I did increase the amount of the dressing. O.k., but I won't make it again.  -  25 Apr 2001  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    I made this recipe for a Super Bowl party. Everyone loved it and I plan on making it again. I used a flavored feta cheese from the supermarket which gave the salad a little extra flavor. I am adding this recipe to my collection. Thanks!  -  21 Feb 2004  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    This was a very tasty pasta salad---great for a warm summer day! I doubled the chicken for my husband's sake and marinated it first in lemon juice, olive oil, garlic, and fresh chopped oregano before baking it. Because I don't love olives, I used a small can (2.25 oz), which seemed to be plenty. Also, I substituted a yellow bell pepper for a green one; they seem less bitter to me. Don't forget to add salt and pepper to the marinade!  -  30 Apr 2004  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
