Pesto Pasta Salad
This fresh-tasting pasta salad is a summer twist on the traditional Ligurian dish of pasta with pesto and green beans. Cherry tomatoes add a burst of bright color and sweetness. Spiral pasta catches and hold the bits of basil pesto. Depending on what’s in season, we may add cherry tomatoes, nuts, peas, and olive tapenade, plus goat cheese, slivered almonds amd sun-dried tomatoes.
