Pasta salad

Dried tomatoes, crunchy arugula and fine parmesan - this summer we are looking forward to a very special pasta salad, an Italian pasta salad .

Pasta salad can anyone? Right! But hardly anyone tastes as much after vacation as this Italian pasta salad . No heavy mayonnaise and no dull tangerine mandarin, but a light vinegar oil dressing and many Mediterranean ingredients - so the summer tastes!

We enjoy our Italian pasta salad at the next barbecue or the local balcony. And crown our Italian evening with a piece of tiramisu. A summery treat!
