    Lizzie-Babette's Note:

    We make this easy pasta salad a lot in the summer - it's delicious at room temp or cold on hot days, and there's no mayo in it, so it travels well, too. We also make this during the winter, to remember what summer tasted like. It makes a great light lunch or dinner. Adapted from a Gourmet recipe.

      I will definitely try this recipe again. If you do not actually toast the walnuts .. I threw them on to the surface of a hot cast iron frying pan and pushed them around until the oil started to emerge .. prep time is down to 10 minutes and that can be done while the pasta is cooking. I cut back on the pasta to just a handful, and treated the meal as a Solo Dinner.

      This was so delicious. I loved the very garlicky dressing and I added lots and lots of toasted pine nuts. This is a salad/meal, and some nice crusty bread and fruit salad rounded off a delicious, healthy meal. Thanks.
