SO HOW'D IT GO?

This was not bad. I warmed this up in the microwave and it was alright. Next time, I might add a touch more dressing and maybe broccoli. Otherwise, I would rate this 3.75/5.

I didn't have peppers so I used collard greens.  It was so good!

This recipe was exactly what I was looking for when I searched for a bean and pasta salad. The only adjustments made were bow tie pasta instead of shell, I used a bean mixture of kidney, black-eyed peas and black beans, and used green and orange bell peppers because I am not so fond of red. The result was very delicious and colorful, perfect for spring/summer.
