Pesto Pasta Salad
Source: Alvin Smith
I made this delicious pasta salad a couple weeks ago for a family party. The kids in the group found this dish a little too sophisticated, but the adults loved it.
1 pound pasta
1 medium jar pesto sauce
1 package salty cheese or feta cheese
3 tablespoons onion, finely chopped
1/2 cup Parmesan cheese
salt to taste
Cook the noodles only till firm. Drain immediately and rinse with cold water. Add the bottle of pesto sauce, chopped onions, Parmesan and salt to taste. Dice the cheese into small squares and stir gently into noodles. Allow to chill for several hours before serving.
Optional: Halved baby tomatoes and black olives make a lovely addition to this salad.
Update: I made the Pesto Pasta Salad again last and served it piping hot. It was equally delicious!!
