Pesto Pasta Salad
I love our pesto and always keep jars on hand for this salad, garlic bread, pasta dishes, etc. I throw this salad together when I have unexpected guests.
1/2 box penne pasta
1 cup chopped zucchini or lightly cooked asparagus or broccoli
10-12 cherry tomatoes, halved
1 green onion, very thinly sliced
3-4 oz. mozzarella, cut into 1/2 inch cubes
10 pitted kalamata olives
1/2 jar Delizia Basil Pesto
Cook the pasta according to package directions. Rinse and drain until the pasta is cool. Place in a large bowl. Add remaining ingredients and combine. Chill at least 1/2 hour. Taste salad to see if it needs salt, pepper or more pesto.
