Sun-dried Tomato Pasta Salad

If you've never read The Pioneer Woman's blog before, you should.  If for no other reason than for this pasta.  It's her spin on a Barefoot Contessa recipe, and it is ridiculously good.  I'm always on the hunt for new lunch ideas (eating quesadillas day after day can get a little old), especially recipes that I can make once and eat all week.  This is a perfect example of such a recipe.  I had it today, right after I made it, and it was heaven.  I can't wait to eat it tomorrow after the flavors of the sun-dried tomatoes, olives and basil have had a chance to get to know each other better.  If you're looking for a new pasta salad to try, definitely give this one a go! 

Oh, FYI, I made her recipe exactly as she wrote it except for one thing: I only used about half the olive oil she called for and added some starchy pasta water instead.
