Does it work?

is it weird?

i want pasta salad, but other than spaghetti or linguine all i have is one box of tri color rotini and i usually make 2 boxes at a time. i'd go and do some quick grocery shopping, but hubby has my truck cause his car was being weird this morning....

So, does it work? Do you use the pasta whole or do you break it in pieces...?

I don't see why it wouldn't work, it will just be a different texture. I don't even think I would break the noodles. :idunno

It will work just fine, however you make it. If I were making it I may break up the pasta a bit so you could fit other ingredients on the fork with the pasta. It sounds yummy!

The first recipe that I ever got for pasta salad it was with spaghetti and we did not break it up. I have used a number of different pastas including rotini, penne rigates and bowties.:thumb
