No one ever eats what I bring to functions

Be an après church coffee fellowship, the local senior's club, Bible study refreshments or any other social function where I bring food, no ever touches what I bring and I end up having to take it back home. It is getting embarrassing. My last disappointment was a pasta salad. I like to put my own spin on things and instead of using the more traditional farfalle or fusilli, I used campanelle. Then I add chopped tomatoes, juilenned baby spinach, shredded carrots, sliced black olives and salami strips. For seasoning, just a teaspoon of dried Italian herb mix, a pinch of salt, and vinaigrette Italian salad dressing. Does this sound so bad?
