This is another one of my favorite pasta salads that came from the The Farmchicks In The Kitchen cookbook. This is a great cookbook with simple and delicious recipes which are all inspired by country living and times spent with family and friends. Plus, there are great photographs of the recipes which is one of the things I love most in a cookbook.
So, here is what you need...
3 cups bowtie pasta
1/4 cup pesto
1/4 cup sour cream
1 cup chopped fresh tomatoes
1/2 cup halved pitted black olives
1/3 cup grated parmesan cheese ( I used shaved parmesan cheese)
1/4 cup pine nuts
Cook the pasta in a large pot of lightly salted boiling water according to the package directions. Drain, rinse under cold running water, drain well, and let cool. Place in large bowl.
Mix the pesto and sour cream together in a small bowl and add to pasta, tossing to coat. Add the tomatoes, olives, cheese, and pine nuts; toss to mix.
