    Loved this! I used green onion and whole wheat pasta. Save 1/4 cup of the combined dressing to stir into salad when ready to serve for a nice, creamy texture. In addition to the lemon included in recipe, squeeze a bit on top when on your plate and grind fresh ground pepper. So good!! - 8/21/13

    what is barilla - 7/2/08

    Reply from LRUSSELLFAMILY (7/2/08)
    barilla plus is a brand of pasta that is made with legumes and flax seed and other good ingredients. It tastes just as good as regular white pasta but is better for you. Wal-mart carries it right next to their other pasta.
