Recipe by ATB
"This is a quick and delicious recipe from staples in my pantry. It is a hearty pasta salad great as a main dish or side and is perfect for potlucks or anytime you are in a pinch for time. You can't go wrong with this recipe. In season (and on hand) cherry tomatoes would be an excellent addition, as would fresh herbs from your garden. Any cheese would work and diced salami or browned pancetta would be great in here. Be careful not to over-salt your water. The artichokes, olives, dressing, and cheese add lots of salty goodness."

This recipe is as good as the ingredients in your cupboard. I made it with penne pasta, sun dried tomatoes, artichoke hearts and olives from the pantry. I threw in some arugula and basil from the garden. Tossed it with homemade Italian vinaigrette and topped it with 1/2 cup feta. Yum!
