Pasta Salad with Spelt Penne & Tomatoes

Ingredients

  • 2 cups dry pasta
  • 1/3 cup chopped sun-dried tomatoes
  • 2-3 ripe tomatoes, cut in wedges
  • 1/2 yellow, orange, or red pepper, chopped
  • 6-8 leaves fresh basil, cut in ribbons
  • black olives for garnish & black pepper (optional)
  • 1/2 cup Basil Pistou

Directions

  • 1Cook the pasta according to the package directions and drain when done. While the pasta cooks, prepare the sun-dried tomatoes, chopped pepper, fresh tomatoes, and basil ribbons
  • 2Cut basil ribbons by layering the leaves on top of one another and rolling them to make a tight roll. Then, using a sharp knife, cut horizontally to make uniform ‘ribbons’. Hint: you can also keep it real and rustic by tearing the leaves with your hands.
  • 3Start by tossing the still hot pasta with the pistou in a mixing bowl and stir well to combine. Add the chopped peppers and 2/3 of the prepared basil leaves and stir well. Transfer to a serving bowl and garnish with olives, remaining basil ribbons (or torn leaves), fresh tomato wedges, and black pepper. Don’t be shy to add a little splash of extra olive oil to the top either, that never hurts!
