Easy Pasta Salad Recipe with Sundried Tomatoes and Basil
Great Pasta Salad Recipe
I make this salad almost every week with the confidence that I am feeding my family a healthy easy recipe they love. You can alter it however you want. Just use any vegetable or cheese in your fridge your family enjoys.
1. Boil one box whole wheat or vegetable pasta according to package directions.
2. Cut up tomatoes, fresh basil or dried if fresh is not available and black olives.
3. If you can find sundried tomatoes in olive oil, cut tomatoes into small bite size pieces.
4. If you can't find sundried tomatoes in oil cut up packaged tomatoes and add extra virgin olive oil to taste about 1/4 to 1/2 cup. Be sure to add some olive oil from tomatoes if available.
6. Add salt and pepper to taste, garlic, chives, and any other spices you like. Toss and chill.
Sometimes I will add cut up spinach leaves, cheese, fresh salad tomatoes and other condiments to taste. Enjoy. This salad will taste even better day 2 and 3!!!! You might like to sprinkle with roasted pine nuts or even almonds.
