Pasta Salad with Roasted Red Pepper Dressing

I was pretty surprised when it came to this dish.  It didn’t have many reviews, but of the few it did, they were all praising the recipe.  I’m talking 4 & 5 spoons.  So I had pretty high hopes for this dinner.
My high hopes ended up being very disappointed 🙁
The dressing just really did not have any flavor which was so surprising considering what the dressing is made with.  The Hubs agreed too.  So unfortunately this is one of those recipes that we won’t be putting in our dinner rotation.
