I love using the bow tie pasta (made with carrots and squash).  Full of flavor and it just makes it pretty!  By using the bow tie pasta, it tends to help hold up with all the ingredients when you pick it up with your fork.

One of the other main ingredients, the dresssing, is just a bottle of (Kraft) Roasted Red Pepper Salad dressing.  It truly gives this pasta salad bit of a zing!
