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
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.
