Capellini Asiago Cold Salad

I adapted this recipe from Wegmans for this wonderful salad. It is a great salad to make a day ahead and will last for several days in the refrigerator. Plus it is perfect for a hot summer day as the capellini only takes about 2 1/2 minutes to cook and since it lasts for several days you can make a large recipe. It is a nice side for many grilled meats like Balsamic Marinated Grilled Chicken Sandwich, BBQ Center-Cut Boneless Pork Chops, and steak. Plus it is becoming one of my husband’s favorite side-dishes and he is asking when am I making it again!

8 ounces Capellini Pasta, broken in half
2 oz Asiago Pressato, shredded
1 cup Tomato Bruschetta
1 tbsp. Basil, dried
2 tbsp Hot Pepper Jelly
Salt and Pepper
1/8 cup Wegmans Basting Oil

Note: If you do not have Wegmans Basting Oil you can substitute:
2 Tbsp Olive Oil and/or Grapeseed Oil
Assorted herbs such as rosemary, thyme, parsley
Minced Garlic

Cook the pasta as per the directions on the box – about 2 1/2 minutes. Drain and rinse with cold water to stop cooking the pasta. Combine the pasta with the remaining ingredients seasoning with salt and pepper to your taste. Store in the refrigerator.

      Thank you! It was good! 🙂

  2. We are still in nineties down here, so this sounds so refreshing to this sweltering family!

      We got this strange cold-snap where the temperatures are in high 60’s to low 70’s. Very bizarre summer. Some weekends are brutally hot and others feel a bit more like fall. Though I have to say the cooler weekends are nice for disc golf!

  3. That looks beautiful, Bernice! I love these types of dishes and I don’t cook cappellini as much as I do other pastas, but I do love how quickly it cooks up…perfect for week nights.

      This is the first time I have used this pasta. It was simple to make and my husband just loved it. I served it shortly after making it and it was good. But Greg really though it was better the next couple of days.
