    This was great! Used cherry tomatoes cut in half, 2 ears corn on the cob, cut off. Did not have red wine vinegar, used Balsamic,vidalia onions.You could use any small pasta, followed directions for rest of recipe..yum. Great with all the fresh summer produce.  -  18 Jul 2004  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    Yummy. A tasty summer dish - hot or cold. I modified the dish slightly, but it turned out well. I used more corn (2 cups) and threw in an entire 19 oz can of black beans. I also used fresh instead of dried basil (1/2 cup). Instead of parmesan, I used feta with pleasing results. I also used way less oil (only 1 tbsp). Otherwise pretty tasty.. I'd wait for the summer tomatoes for this dish.  -  24 Feb 2005  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    Wow!! Kids raved and hubby loved it! I was out of green onions, so I added 1/4 tsp dried minced onion. Used rotini for the pasta, and of course added a little garlic powder cause everything's better with garlic! Thanks for the great, quick recipe.  -  10 Aug 2005  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
