    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

    This is how I always make my pasta salad and it goes like "hot cakes" I actually have to make 2 batches so my hubby and I can eat it throughout the week also! - 5/25/10

    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
