    Very Good

    I do a less lo-cal version of this. I add cubed cheese, cubed ham or chicken, and some peas. No need to add a lot. Even a little adds color and extra taste. Keep the cubes small. It adds protein and makes it a meal rather than a side dish. At a family event I had dishes of these to add. - 7/10/12

    I am making this with Barilla whole wheat Rotini, and my own homemade extra virgin olive oil mayo, and taking it to my cousin's house for a dinner there. Thanks for sharing this lovely recipe. :) - 3/10/12

    I'm a little confused. One nutrition guide for this recipe states only 98 mg sodium and the other one states 432 mg. Which one is correct? I have to watch my sodium intake. - 2/19/12
