What a wonderful, tasty & different type pasta salad to bring anywhere (potluck, family events, etc). I doubled the recipe and added more roasted red pepper & artichoke hearts and omitted the black olives and olive oil. However, we had a serving size amount left and the next day i did add a bit of olive oil to it to moisten everything. Thanks - really tasty dish!!
Very tasty!! The pesto flavor combined well with the sour flavor of the olives and artichoke hearts! This was fabulous!! Thank you!
I made this to take for lunch this week. This was easy to make and tastes great. The only change I made was to leave out the olive oil. Instead, I added the marinade from the artichokes to the salad.
