    Andi of Longmeadow Farm's Note:

    The garden promises to bring so many wonderful tastes to the farm table. Every summer we behold the wonderful bright early tomatoes and fresh basil. Simply fixed with a little dressing and good wholesome whole wheat pasta is highlighted with olives and mozzarella.

      Very tasty and pretty salad. I made a couple adjustments - only 7 oz tri-color gigli pasta and double the dressing (though I only had celery salt so used 1/4 tsp with no other salt). For the additional ingredients I used red bell pepper not green and local organic pepper jack cheese (instead of the mozz and pepper flakes). I also used heirloom tomatoes and kalamata olives with fresh basil I grew myself. I am looking forward to enjoying this for lunches at work this week. Thanks for sharing!

      WOW, Andi, what a fantastic salad recipe! The flavours mingle so beautifully and make for a sensational taste experience! :) It was the perfect lunch to take to uni with me. Kept me going all day and was a sparkle that I kept looking forward to. :) I made a few small changes to suit my diet and what I had on hand: Used whole spelt pasta, cherry tomatoes, sun-dried tomatoes instead of olives and doubled the sesame seeds for extra crunch. I added in the optional mozzarella and red pepper flakes, which were a very nice addition. Sooo yummy! THANK YOU SO MUCH for sharing this great keeper with us, Andi!

      I thought this was good but not super flavorful. I think it would be better if you let it sit overnight. I used spanish olives instead of black and added some of the juice from the container. I also used 3 different cheeses, mozzarella, cheddar and montery jack. I used corkscrew pasta which worked well because it caught some of the dressing. I didn't have sesame seeds or celery seed so left that out. I also added chopped up sliced salami.
