Sun Dried Tomato & Asiago Cheese Pasta Salad

Sun Dried Tomato & Asiago Cheese Pasta Salad

div dir="ltr" style="text-align: left;"span class="Apple-style-span" style="color: #073763; font-family: inherit;"This is definitely a salad I'm going to have to make again, especially since I only tasted a small forkful of it! Our cheer booster club was hosting a ladies night out event in December and I wasn't able to attend, but I signed up to bring a salad. I wanted it to be vinaigrette based as it was going to be sitting out for a couple of hours and from what I was told, it was a hit. I generally use sun dried tomatoes that are not packed in oil, but I figured by using this type, it would give this salad a tad more flavor using the oil the tomatoes were packed in, instead of regular extra virgin olive oil. /spanbr /span class="Apple-style-span" style="color: #073763; font-family: inherit;"br //spanbr /div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;"a href="http://4.bp.blogspot.com/-WXHLTzfXn0/ULz-6N0N2gI/AAAAAAAAFtg/HbnyEDrMeZA/s1600/Asiago,+Sun+Dried+Tomato+and+Basil+Pasta+Salad-2.jpg" style="clear: left; float: left; margin-bottom: 1em; margin-right: 1em;"img border="0" height="320" src="http://4.bp.blogspot.com/-WXHLTzfXn0/ULz-6N0N2gI/AAAAAAAAFtg/HbnyEDrMeZA/s320/Asiago,+Sun+Dried+Tomato+and+Basil+Pasta+Salad-2.jpg" width="294" //a/divspan class="Apple-style-span" style="color: #073763; font-family: inherit;"buSun Dried Tomato & Asiago Cheese Pasta Salad/u/b/spanbr /span class="Apple-style-span" style="color: #073763; font-family: inherit;"1 lb.
