Cook pasta as package directs. (This was a slow cooking pasta due to the 'realness' of the product...18 minutes!)
Drain and set aside.
Prepare pesto. Toss through pasta with all ingredients. Garnish with a few basil leaves.
Voila...a few great additions to this to make it a meal instead of a side would be flaked tuna, diced cooked chicken, roasted eggplant or pumpkin, or try adding different herbs and nuts in the pesto for a totally different take. Pasta salad is like Potato Salad; whatever you do, throw flavour at it along with a great dressing and you can't really go wrong. Erm...unless you're on a low carb diet!
