How to Make Ashley's Pasta Salad


  1. Cook the pasta per the instructions on the box
    After draining the pasta I usually leave it in the colander & pour most of the oil from the sundried tomatoes on it to keep it from sticking together

    In no particular order:
    Chop the basil
    Cube mozzarella
    Chop the olives
    Quarter the tomatoes
    Add the parmesan cheese
    Add the sundried tomatoes
    Add chopped garlic
