READY IN: 20mins
Recipe by Thymestudio

Another summer pasta salad great for a hot afternoon. I like serving with homemade bread and it makes a great simple lunch. Note: I like using a mix of different olives, but you can use your own favorites.

Lovely! Very light flavors; delicious but not overwhelming. I used regular black olives, for fear that something like kalamata would overwhelm everything else -- but I think I'd prefer it with a stronger-tasting olive. I used whole wheat rotelle, and a hand-made mozzarella from Vermont that I picked up at our local farmer's market. Wonderful way to bid adieu to summer foods. Thanks for posting this!
