Tri Color Pasta Salad

Quick, easy and delicious salad.  Full of color and taste!  

Great for parties and side dish wish any meal, and also with barbecue.

 Tri Color Pasta Salad

  • 350gr tri-color rotini dried pasta - cook and drain as instructed in package
  • 3 tomatoes, diced
  • 1 can black olives, sliced
  • ¼ cups red onion, finely diced
  • 3/4 cup parmesan cheese
  • 8 fresh basil leaves, cut into strips
  • 4 tablespoons basil pesto
  • 2/3 cup creamy Caesar dressing
  • 2 teaspoons sauté spice (equal parts black pepper, salt, and garlic powder)
  • ½-1 cup toasted pine nuts (I omitted this, but next time will use!)
  1. Cook pasta and coat with Caesar dressing while warm. Add the rest of the ingredients (minus the pine nuts) and toss. 
  2. Top with toasted pine nuts. Refrigerate until ready to serve.
