    Next time I would marinate the veggies first before adding the pasta. It soaked up all the marinade in the 24 hours. Very good though. I also used Splenda instead of sugar. - 6/18/08

    I will not make this again! I should have known better about adding vinegar! If I used brine I would probably like it. - 6/9/09
