I am needing to make this salad for a bridal shower on saturday. I had a recipe from the St. Pete Times but I lost it :( I am looking for something that is out of this world tasting and I don't mind if its labor intensive either! So if any of you have a good recipe please post thanks!

I haven't tried this recipe, but I've been saving it for a 'pasta salad' occasion b'c it looks good. http://www.foodnetwork.com/food/recipes/recipe/0,,FOOD_9936_32985,00.html[/URL]

Ok, sorry - apparently I don't know how to add links. - It's Emeril's Antipasta Salad from the Food Network.

This isn't a pasta salad, but Cooking Light has an Italian Antipasto salad you could search for in the Kitchen Assistant. I made it for my supper club this past month and everyone really enjoyed it. It makes for a lovely presentation as well. It's basically an antipasto served atop a bed of mixed greens.

This is my favorite pasta salad. It is always a hit. I made it for a bridal shower last October and several asked for the recipe. I think I tripled the dressing and used 11/2 lb of cockscrew pasta. It served 30. (I like pasta salads heavy on the veges. ) Darla

Pasta Salad with Garlic Basil Dressing
Serving Size : 0 Preparation Time :0:00
Categories : Salads Vegetables
Amount Measure Ingredient -- Preparation Method
-------- ------------ --------------------------------
3 ounces white wine vinegar
1/8 teaspoon freshly ground pepper +
1/2 teaspoon salt
3 teaspoons sugar
5 ounces light olive oil
4 cloves garlic, minced
9 medium basil leaves, chopped
For the pasta salad - toss together 1 1/2 lb precooked corkscrew pasta with chopped green and red peppers, thinly sliced red onions, a can of artichokes packed in water, small pieces of broccoli, a can of drained baby corn, olives, fresh cubed mozzarella , Colissimo's sausage stick (or salami) in small pieces , fresh basil and pear tomatoes. I often add freshly grated parmesan cheese too. I like to put together the night before and add the fresh basil, mozzarella, parmesan and tomatoes just before serving. I usually have to add a bit more dressing because some soaks in. (Dressing can be made a few days ahead and add the basil just before serving. )
