DIRECTIONS

  • For the pesto, place all ingredients with ½ cup of the oil in a blender and blend.
  • Gradually drizzle in the remaining ¼ cup of oil until pesto is thick and smooth.
  • This will make about 1 1/2 cups pesto.
  • For the pasta, bring a large pot of salted water to boil.
  • Stir in the bow ties and cook, stirring occasionally, until al dente, about 10 minutes.
  • Drain the pasta and run it under cold water just until it stops steaming.
  • Bounce the pasta around to get rid of as much water as you can.
  • Dump the pasta into a large serving bowl.
  • Stir in the pesto until the pasta is coated.
  • Toss in the cherry tomatoes and the crumbled feta.
  • Taste the salad and season it as you like with salt and pepper.
  • You can make the salad up to about 1 hour before you serve it.
  • If the salad looks a little dry, add some olive oil prior to serving.
