Bow Tie Pasta With Sun-Dried Tomatoes and Kalamata Olives

READY IN: 12mins
Recipe by Vicki in CT

Tang of the tomatoes with the heat of the chile oil combines for a terrific side dish. Easy one pot cooking. Toss in some cooked chicken or shrimp for a main course meal.**

Excellent and easy pasta dish, appropriate for a weeknight vegetarian supper. I served this with a salad. I usually like my pasta with lots of sauce. Well, this didn't have so much but was good anyway. I used a combo of sundried tomatoes and roasted tomatoes from the antipasto bar at the market as well as kalamata olives (love them). I tried to rinse off as much oil as I could, and substituted the oil called for in the recipe with vegetable broth and red pepper. BF had seconds, a sure sign of a hit! Thanks very much.
