    Some great additions would be black olives, green or red onion, roasted red peppers, crumbled feta, fresh basil (which I wish I had on hand right now), and/or a little italian salami (diced up small). Sun dried tomatoes would be good too if you don't have any fresh ones on hand :) - 4/9/10

    I used Schwan's bow tie pasta mix which has peas, corn, carrots, and red bell pepper. I did not have cucumber on hand, but sure it would have been yummy. - 3/24/10

    I'll make this with whole wheat pasta and add a few table spoons of Fat Free Sour Cream to get a different consistency. And then lots of ground black pepper of course!!! - 6/10/09

  • You say the calories per serving but not the serving size, what is it please? I really don't want to make it then have to measure it all out afterwards. Sounds like maybe 1 1/2 cups, is that about right? - 6/4/10
