PENNE MEDITERRANEAN DELIGHT SALAD

Ingredients

2 cups (dry) Dreamfields Penne Rigate
1 cup red and/or yellow cherry tomatoes, cut in half
2/3 cup prepared hummus
1/2 cup chopped red onion
1/3 cup black and/or green pitted Greek olives, cut in half

1/4 cup chopped fresh basil
3 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
2 tablespoons olive oil
1 tablespoon capers, drained
1/2 teaspoon each salt and ground black pepper
2 tablespoons toasted pine nuts

Directions

  • Prepare pasta according to package directions. Rinse in cold water and drain well.
    Gently toss remaining ingredients except pine nuts with pasta. Refrigerate, covered, to chill.
    Sprinkle with pine nuts before serving.
    NOTES:
    Hummus makes a very delicious and different pasta salad dressing. This recipe can serve as a filling lunch salad. If the mixture is dry, drizzle some additional olive oil to moisten. Add the pine nuts just before serving.
