This recipe is truly a "scratch" one but, after your culinary efforts, your guests will be mightily pleased to have tasted a pasta salad that is bright, new, and delicious. You will not find this recipe anywhere else because it took me about 6 months to develop it and I have only posted it HERE on Recipezaar! I wanted a pasta salad that used an Italian-based dressing and which packed a LOT of flavor, slightly creamy. Through much research, a few false starts and, blind luck, I got the pasta salad that I wanted. It's fairly easy to put together but it does take some time. It's great for a covered dish or as a side dish to either fried chicken or pork chops. I plan to use it for summer barbecues as well. And, once again, I have to thank Dee514 for her spectacular Italian Spice Blend recipe (Italian Blend Spice Mix) which I have listed in the directions and which is an integral ingredient. For SAINT PATRICK'S DAY, use all GREEN PASTA (spinach pasta)! I hope you enjoy this pasta salad as much as I do.
