This pasta dish is good hot or cold. Fast and easy and will hold up well in the fridge for at least a week- that is if it lasts that long. Your children will love it. My family loves the salad hot - then any leftovers are usually eaten cold. It's really good ladies. Note: You can add any chopped up vegetables your family likes. Add tuna or,cooked and chopped chicken,ground beef,pepperoni, bacon or luncheon meat, etc......
