    Love the taste. Very easy to make. However, the suggested amount of pasta was not enough for 8, I had to double the pasta. And 1/2 a cup of olive oil was too much, even for the double amount of pasta.

    Awesome! The pinto beans add a nice nutty flavor to this salad. I embellished a little bit and added mustard seeds and dry dill. Yum.
