Originally given to me by a colleague and she used cherry tomatoes instead of the canned variety. I began adding things to it and experimented with a variety of items. I also generally make this for a crowd and if you try this for a crowd, increase the packages to three of the rotini pasta and you might need a larger bottle or more than one of the Italian salad dressing (any variety).
