Artichoke and Sun Dried Tomato Pasta Salad
There’s so much goodness in this artichoke and sun-dried tomato pasta salad! Lots of fresh and flavorful ingredients and the cutest pasta that reminds me of a rooster or a seahorse. It’s called creste di gallo, and it’s the first time I’ve ever seen it in a store.
I started with all kinds of yumminess including a few of my favorites from Cento Fine Foods: artichoke hearts, sun-dried tomatoes and roasted red peppers.
And when everything is together in a bowl, it makes the most delicious kaleidoscope of colors.
Mix everything up with your favorite Italian salad dressing and you’ve got yourself one heck of a tasty artichoke and sun dried tomato pasta salad.
Serve it up and enjoy! (And if you need salad pairing ideas, I’ve got those too.)
