  • Very good. I changed it up a little. Didn't have any penne so I used whole wheat rotini. I also used Wishbone Bountifuls Tuscan Romano Basil Dressing ( only 25 cal/2 Tbl) instead of the olive oil. Added roasted green & yellow peppers and tossed in some fresh baby spinach at right before serving. - 6/3/08
