 Ingredients List

  • 2 bn Asparagus -- cut into 1"
  • Sections
  • 1 pt Cherry tomatoes --
  • Quartered
  • 16 oz Pasta -- wagon wheel
  • 1/2 c Red wine vinegar
  • 1/2 md Onion -- chopped
  • 2 Cloves garlic -- crushed
  • 4 tb Olive oil
  • 3 tb Dijon mustard
  • 1 ts Dried basil
  • 1 ts Dried parsley
  • Black pepper
  • Salt (optional)
  • Parmesan cheese (optional)


Cook pasta according to instructions. Add asparagus for the last 2 1/2
minutes of boiling (not longer than this or it will be too soft). Drain and
rinse with cold water. Add tomatoes and onions. Chill. Combine the
remaining ingredients, and pour over salad when ready to serve. Add salt
and freshly ground black pepper to taste. [Sprinkle parmesan cheese on

Yumm! this served 10 at dinner with leftovers, (but it was not the main
dish). I can also imagine it with small cubes of mozzarella cheese instead
of (or in addtion to) parmesan, or with dill instead of basil.
