Sun Dried Tomato & Asiago Cheese Pasta Salad made with bow tie pasta, oil packed sun dried tomatoes, freshly shredded Asiago PDO cheese and basil in a balsamic vinaigrette.
This Sun Dried Tomato & Asiago Cheese Pasta Salad is definitely a salad that I'm going to have to make again and again. Especially since I only tasted a small forkful of it!
Our cheerleading booster club was hosting a ladies night event in December and I wasn't able to attend. I felt bad because I signed up to bring a salad and could no longer go.
I wanted it to be vinaigrette based salad as it was going to be sitting out for a couple of hours. From what I was told, this salad was a huge hit.
How do you make Sun Dried Tomato & Asiago Cheese Pasta Salad?
For this salad you'll need pasta, sun dried tomatoes packed in oil, onion, basil, Asiago cheese, Good Seasons Italian Dressing mix and balsamic vinegar.
I generally like to use fresh sun dried tomatoes instead of those packed in oil, but the oil gave it a little more flavor. Start by cooking the pasta according to package directions, rinse under cold water and cool.
Place the pasta in a large bowl and add the sun dried tomatoes, onions, basil, cheese, dressing mix, oil from the sun dried tomatoes and vinegar.
Mix well. This pasta salad makes 10 cups or twenty ½ cup servings and is so flavorful. It's great for outdoor cookouts or other gatherings. ~Enjoy!

I really like asiago too!
What a tasty looking salad, and how great to find an oil-based pasta salad that can sit at room temp for a while. Bookmarked!
