Sundried Tomato Pasta Salad

I made this to take to a friends house and it came out so yummy!  I am not an olive fan but really liked Kalamata olives.  This was so easy to make.  I am craving it now.  I think I may have to make it this weekend.  Enjoy!!! 


Dressing Ingredients:
1 jar Sundried Tomatoes (7 Oz.)
4 cloves Garlic
3 Tablespoons Red Wine Vinegar
1 cup Extra Virgin Olive Oil
Salt And Pepper, to taste

16 ounces, weight Corkscrew Pasta
1 jar Kalamata Or Assorted Olives
1 pint Ripe Cherry Tomatoes (cut In Halves)
10 leaves Basil (10-15 Leaves), Chopped Or Julienne

1-½ cup Parmesan Cheese, Freshly Grated


In a blender combine sundried tomatoes, garlic , salt, pepper and vinegar until tomatoes are chopped. Continue blending while drizzling in olive oil until mixed together.

Cook pasta according to package directions. 
Drain and rinse with cold water until no longer hot.
Pour 2/3 of the dressing over the pasta. Add olives and toss together. Add remaining ingredients, tossing together and adding more dressing until the salad is coated to your liking. olives and toss together.
