Doctor Who Party: Bow Tie Pasta is Cool

Doctor Who Party: Bow Tie Pasta is Cool

In honor of the eleventh Doctor, this cold bow tie pasta dish is a Who’s Who of all of my favorites – olives, garlic, lemony tofu, chickpeas, and artichoke hearts. (The Doctor actually has two hearts, but I threw in an extra for good measure.) It can be served hot or cold, but you know what the Doctor would prefer… (Bow ties are cool!)
