    Geema's Note:

    This wonderful pasta salad was created to remind me of a sunny day on the Mediterranean, loaded with fresh vegetables, olives, sundried tomatoes, Parmesan and fresh basil. I have also added grilled chicken to this dish, which makes it even better. For vegetarian omit the shrimp and chicken.

      This was such an easy and delicious salad. My church does a potluck service every week and I took this dish this time and everyone enjoyed it! My children weren't to fond of it lol, but the adults all raved! This will definitely be in my regular potluck rotation! Thanks!

      Well the sun hasn`t been out for 2 months but this salad brought it out for me! Follow everything except the dressing. In a blender I put the marinate from the articokes, a couple of anchovies, a squeezed lemon, the 3 cloves of garlic, Italian seasonings, a little bit of dijon. Blended and added oil while blending to make a nice rich dressing. Geema,Great stuff!!!
