INGREDIENTS

1 Pound Corkscrew Pasta

12 Ounces Marinated Artichoke Hearts

8 Ounces Cubed Smoked Mozzarella

8 Ounces Cubed Salami or Turkey

3 Tablespoons Chopped Pepperoncini

¼ Cup Chopped Fresh Basil Leaves

½ Cup Halved Cherry Tomatoes

¼ Cup Chopped Kalamata Olives

Dressing

1 Clove Finely Chopped Garlic

2 Tablespoons Red Wine Vinegar

¼ Cup Olive Oil

1/3 Teaspoon Kosher Salt

1/3 Teaspoon Freshly Ground Black Pepper

Cook the pasta in a large-size pot of salted boiling water as directed on the package. Make sure that you don’t overcook the pasta, as you always want it al dente. Drain well and cool. Drain and quarter the artichoke hearts. In a large-size bowl combine the pasta, artichoke hearts, mozzarella, salami or turkey, tomatoes, pepperoncini, olives and basil. Combine well. In a small-size bowl, whisk together the garlic, red wine vinegar, olive oil, salt and pepper. Toss the dressing with the pasta mixture. Serve chilled or room temperature. Serves 4
