Not a bad meal on a hot day when you don't want don't want to slave over a hot stove on a summer day.
So simple and very good. I added some sauteed mushrooms, peas and put out some parmesan cheese for anyone who wanted to top it wiht that. For the chicken, I used cutlets and marinated them in the italian dressing for a couple of hours and baked them in the oven while I was cooking the pasta. Everyone liked it a lot and my daughter asked me to pack the leftovers for her lunch the next day just like another reviewer said.
Great recipe to start with and later make it your own. I add the shredded swiss cheese on top, a spoon full of minced garlic from the jar, and when I'm pressed for time, the chopped up grilled chicken that comes already prepared for salads. Fresh chicken that you cook youself if always better but if you need something quick this works too. I have also added a thin layer of lettuce and some black olives to spruce it up when I take the dish to get-togethers, but just plain is how I like it the best!
Thank you for the recipe? most of my pasta salads are made up from whatever I have on hand, I don’t even remember half of them. Usually I season then add olive oil, a touch of sugar, and vinegar I like to keep it simple. But for some reason I have not used Italian salad dressing. Not to mention I usually have a bottle in the fridge because I like to use it as a marinade on wild meat.
really good and so easy to make. I just bought premade italian dressing (cheesy garlic) and added fresh sauteed mushrooms, a half of a jar of roasted red pepppers, canned tomatos and extra grated parmesan cheese. I think it is best served slightly warm to room temperature. Made it several times and got great reviews from all who ate it
I thought this was ok the first time but the second time making it I changed a couple things and it turned out much better. I added 1 c fresh parm, used 1 14oz can of diced flavored tomatoes and made a packet of dry italian seasoning instead of putting in a whole bottle (cheaper that way). A pretty good fast/basic recipe though. My kids liked it, so thats always good :)
good basic recipe. I marinated the chicken in 1/4 c of italian dressing and then used (3!) of my parents' homegrown tomatoes, sauteed with onion, garlic, basil and olive oil. Tastes wonderfully fresh!
I love this recipe. However, I use the Sundried tomatoes (in a jar). I also add mushrooms and broccoli. Whenever I make it all of the kids come home.
I like it as a hot entree. Added Parmesan cheese as others suggested.
Very tasty, easy recipe.
