    Tasty! Thanks for the recipe! I couldn't find Kraft Lite Balsamic Vinaigrette Salad Dressing, so I went with a light Italian. Also deelish! You will need more than 3/4 cup though. And I'd go a little heavier on the lemon juice next time. Thanks again! Overall, great dish! - 6/16/09

    I love the combination of veggies with the pasta but I don't like bottled dressing so I used a basic oil and vinegar dressing instead. It turned out great and we all loved it. Good stuff! Thanks for the idea! Sorry, now I have the stars added. - 7/21/09
