Sun Dried Tomato & Asiago Cheese Pasta Salad

By Carrie's Experimental Kitchen

I generally use sun dried tomatoes that are not packed in oil, but I figured by using this type, it would give this salad a tad more flavor using the oil the tomatoes were packed in, instead of regular extra virgin olive oil.

Serving Size: 20

Ingredients:
  • 1 lb farfalle pasta (I used Barilla)
  • ¼ cup chopped red onion
  • 8 oz jar sun dried tomato in oil, diced
  • ⅓ cup chopped fresh basil leaf
  • ½ cup Asiago cheese, shredded
  • 1 package Good Seasons Italian Dressing Mix
  • ⅓ cup balsamic vinegar
Directions:
  1. Cook pasta according to package directions, rinse under cold water and cool.
  2. Place the pasta in a large bowl and add the sun dried tomatoes, onions, basil, cheese, dressing mix, oil from the sun dried tomatoes and vinegar. Mix well. Makes 10 cups (20-1/2 cup servings).
