Bruschetta Pasta Salad

by

I have no idea where I found this recipe or I would give them credit.  It was one of those recipes you find floating around on Facebook.  I seen this one and I knew we would love it.  It’s so light and refreshing.  The fresh vegetables are amazing in it.  And it’s so inexpensive to make.  This would make the perfect summer BBQ side dish.  You could also have it as a meal with a side of garlic toast.

    3 cups cooked pasta
    5 tomatoes, chopped
    2 green onions, chopped
    1 tbsp red onion, chopped finely
    1-2 cloves garlic, minced
    1 bunch basil, chopped
    1 tbsp olive oil
    2 – 4 tsp balsamic vinegar (to your taste)
    1/3 cup shredded parmesan cheese
    salt & fresh ground pepper to taste

Instructions:

    In a bowl, combine the tomatoes, onions, garlic, chopped basil, olive oil, balsamic vinegar and parmesan cheese.
    Let this mixture rest for at least 15 minutes.
    Then toss the tomato mixture with the cooked noodles.
    Season with salt and fresh ground pepper.
    You can serve and enjoy this recipe right away, or let it rest for up to an hour before enjoying!

Note:

You could modify any one of these ingredients to your taste. We thought some red or orange bell peppers would be a nice addition.
