    I personally thought 16 oz of pasta was too much. It tasted a bit bland with so much. Maybe half would work way better, but everything else worked well together

    Followed the recipe as is. I loved the pesto and the basalmic additions that added a little extra something. The only change I made was sprinkling some parmesan in after plating. Really easy!

    Followed the recipe. Good one to take for a potluck. Turned out very good! Will consider adding grilled chicken.

    Nice twist on a classic salad. I used fresh tomatoes and basil from my garden and I also added some red onion and cucumber. It needed a little more seasoning for my taste, but some balsamic reduction glaze did the trick.

    This is a great idea, but it ended up being bland in the end even after adding salt and pepper. I even doubled the balsamic vinegar, doubled the amount of tomatoes, and added some grated cheese. I will probably try again with twice the amount of pesto. It’s a lot of pasta for only 1/4 cup. I will revise after I try it again.

    Love this recipe! I ignored the directions at the end though and added the pesto, balsamic vinaigrette, and salt to taste. Worked out really well and made fantastic leftovers

    I felt it lacked in flavor. I added some of my own seasoning and a little extra balsamic vinaigrette.

    The fresh basil and the pesto make this pasta salad so flavorful. I also loved how quick the recipe was to make.

    Very good, I probably would add more pesto to make it more moist, and more salt, but I really enjoyed, made a double batch, one to take for a family gathering, all enjoyed very much.

    This has become my go-to salad when asked to bring something to a family or friend get together. If I don't have homemade pesto sauce I only use Wegman's brand. If you don't have a Wegman's, I feel terribly sorry for you. 🙂 This pasta salad is terrific and delicious. Use good buffalo mozzarella.

    This recipe is fantastic! My husband never has pasta for leftovers, so you can imagine my surprise when he said he would gladly eat this again for lunch.
