How to make Summer Pasta Salad
4 cups bow-tie pasta
1 cup cherry tomatoes
1 cup sliced snow peas
1/2 cup Parmesan cheese
2 tbsp cilantro
1 cup sun dried tomato dressing
Cook pasta, drain and rinse with cold water. In a large bowl mix the pasta with remaining ingredients. Refrigerate for 2 hours before serving. *I always add a little more dressing right before serving so it’s nice and juicy.
I always have plenty of pasta stocked in the pantry and of course fresh veggies. Easy to make, tossed with sun direid tomato dressing and oh so delicious.
