Tuscan Herb Lemon Pasta Salad

Instead of a heavy mayo loaded pasta salad, or a prepackaged version that is full of ingredients you can't pronounce, how about a healthy version made with flavor packed olive oil and vinegar?

The flavors for this salad come from Sicilian Lemon White Balsamic Vinegar and Tuscan Herb Olive Oil.

2 T. Lemon White Balsamic Vinegar
4 T. Tuscan Herb Olive Oil
8 oz. bow tie pasta, cooked according to package directions, rinsed with cool water, and drained
2 t. Tuscan Herb Seasoning Blend
2 T. finely diced onion
2 T. finely diced green bell pepper
1/4 cup diced sun dried tomatoes
1 T. drained capers
1/2 t. salt
1/4 t. freshly ground black pepper
1/4 t. dried red pepper flakes

In a medium bowl, add vinegar. Slowly add olive oil, whisking constantly. 

Add cooked pasta to a large bowl and slowly pour oil/vinegar mixture over pasta. Stir to combine.

Add remaining ingredients and carefully fold into the pasta. Serve immediately or refrigerate until ready to serve.

Top with grated Parmesan, if desired.
