There probably isn’t a pasta salad on this planet that I wouldn’t eat – I love everything to do with pasta, and this one is so simple and so delicious. Will definitely be pulling this one out for barbecues, birthday parties and that just because I feel like eating pasta salad moments.
WHAT YOU NEED:
// 1 large tomato, diced
// 1 package (16 oz) bowtie pasta
// 6-7 oz brie (we picked ours up at Trader Joe’s – you get two little triangles for fairly cheap!) – cubed.
// 1 tsp salt
// 1 tsp pepper
// 1 tsp olive oil
// 5 oz fresh basil (we got ours in the produce aisle of a grocery store, pre-packaged, but if you’ve got a green thumb and can grow your own, have at it!!)
WHAT YOU DO
// Prepare pasta according to package – drain and place in large bowl.
// Add the rest of the ingredients to the large bowl and mix.
// Refrigerate 2-4 hours and enjoy!
The cheese melts and sort of gives the pasta its own sauce – and if you want more salt, just add it in. I liked it just as much warm as I did cold – so if you want to eat it right after making, go for it! It’s an amazingly easy dish to make, and it’s so so delicious!
