Helpful hints

  • It's important to refrigerate the Pasta Salad for a minimum of 12 (but no more than 24) hours before serving to allow the seasonings time to infuse into the pasta.
  • The amount of dressing and paprika used in this recipe is a matter of personal preference. Analysis includes all the dressing.
