Mediterranean Farfalle Recipe


1 (12 ounce) package farfalle pasta
1 pound chorizo sausage, crumbled
1/4 cup fresh basil leaves, cut into thin strips
1/2 cup pine nuts
2 cloves garlic, minced
1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese
1 cup diced tomato
1/2 cup olive oil

Cook pasta in salted, boiling water until al dente.

While the pasta is cooking, brown ham over medium heat. Add nuts and brown them also; do not burn! Add garlic, and remove from heat.

Drain pasta. In a large bowl, toss together pasta, ham mixture, basil, cheese, and tomatoes. Whisk together olive oil and vinegar; pour over pasta, and toss. Serve.
