Bow Ties With Pesto, Kalamatas, and Sun-Dried Tomatoes

READY IN: 13mins
Recipe by Vicki in CT

Everything's in your pantry for this super easy but flavorful entree. My husband is out of town and a Nor' Easter is heading in and I needed something for dinner. This came together wonderfully. Can easily double, triple, etc. Please note all ingredients are approximate; do not worry about measurements.

I used sliced black olives and a drizzle of good quality extra virgin olive oil. I used fresh parmesan cheese, grated. This is so yummy and easy to do. Thanks Vicki :) Made for Photo tag
