  • Yield: Serves 8
  • Cook time:8 Minutes
  • Prep time:15 Minutes
  • Cost Per Serving:$1.70

Ingredients

  • Salt and pepper
  • 1 pound short pasta such as bow ties, shells or penne
  • 1/4 cup extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1/3 cup rice vinegar
  • 1/2 cup chopped oil-packed sun-dried tomatoes
  • 3/4 cup sliced marinated artichoke hearts
  • 8 ounces bocconcini (small fresh mozzarella nuggets), halved (about 18 pieces)
  • 4 ounces pepperoni or salami, diced
  • 1/2 cup shredded fresh basil leaves
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh oregano

Preparation

1. Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil. Add pasta and cook until al dente, about 8 minutes. Drain well and spread on an oiled baking sheet to cool. (Don't worry if pasta sticks together. It will come apart when mixed with oil.)

2. Transfer cooled pasta to a large bowl and stir in oil. Add vinegar, sun-dried tomatoes, artichoke hearts, bocconcini, pepperoni, basil and oregano. Toss well and season with salt and pepper.
