      Delicious!!! I used orzo pasta (because it give a great creamy texture), both the squash and zucchini, frozen peas only (no corn), red pepper (finely diced rather than strips), no olives, red onion (finely diced), sharp cheddar cheese cubes (each cube sliced in half), fresh organic basil from a tube--it was so fragrant!! (the basil from a tube at my local supermarket:, and a homemade balsamic vinaigrette (not bottled) to cut down on the salt content (used this recipe: What a wonderful non-mayo based pasta salad!! I highly recommend this recipe! :)
