Sun-Dried Tomato Pasta Salad

Pasta with tomatoes, black olives, and sun-dried tomato sauce

Dressing, in blender:

  • 1 jar sun-dried tomatoes (~7 oz)
  • ~1 cup olive oil (use oil from tomatoes)
  • 4 cloves garlic
  • 3 tablespoons red wine vinegar
  • Salt & pepper

Salad:

  • Corkscrew pasta
  • Kalamata or other olives
  • Cherry tomatoes halved
  • Basil
  • Parmesan cheese

Toss together (may not use all of the dressing) and I prefer serving chilled (run pasta under cold water).
