Rotini with Sun-dried Tomatoes & Basil

READY IN: 15mins
Recipe by CountryLady

With a "no-cook" sauce, this is a perfect week night dish for the chef who also works outside of the home! Just toss a salad while the pasta is cooking.

We really enjoyed this tasty, fresh, easy to prepare pasta salad. I followed all directions and ingredients as posted, with the exception that I used a blend of romano and parmesan cheese (as I was running out of parm). I ended up serving the pasta salad as a cold salad. However, having tried some of it warm before I placed it in the fridge, I would definitely say that warm is the way to go and that it may have lost something once served cold (though it was still good). Thanks for a nice lunch that everyone enjoyed.
