Tomato and Herb Pasta Salad

Heirloom Tomato and Herb Pasta Salad

Ingredients:

  • 1 - 10 oz box of Hodgson Mill Whole Wheat Bow Tie Pasta, cooked according to package
  • 3 cups of diced heirloom tomatoes, or any tomatoes will do
  • 4 garlic cloves, minced
  • 3 T extra virgin olive oil
  • 1/2 tsp red pepper flakes
  • 4 green onions, thinly sliced
  • 2 T fresh basil, minced
  • 1 tsp fresh Italian parsley, minced
  • 1/2 tsp fresh thyme, minced
  • 1/2 tsp fresh oregano, minced
  • 3/4 tsp light agave syrup
  • 1 tsp salt
  • black pepper, to taste
  • Directions:

    While pasta is cooking, heat oil, garlic, and pepper flakes in a small non-stick skillet over medium heat. Once garlic begins to sizzle, cook for 1 minute more and then remove from heat. Set aside. After pasta is done cooking, drain and rinse with cold water. Shake the pasta well in strainer to dry. Place pasta into a large bowl. Top with garlic and oil mixture and all the remaining ingredients, tossing gently with a wooden spoon until well combined. You can serve the pasta salad now, or cover with plastic wrap and chill until ready. Enjoy! Serves 6-8 as a side.
