HOW TO MAKE IT IN YOUR BEAST:
In a medium bowl, combine 1.5 cups of cooked cold Pasta (short shapes like fusilli & casarecce work best) with 1/2 cup halved Cherry Tomatoes & 1/4 cup sliced Semi-Dried Tomatoes. Stir to combine & set aside in the fridge while you make the pesto dressing.
To make Sundried Tomato Pesto Dressing: In a blender, whiz 3/4 cup Semi-Dried Tomatoes with 4tbsp Olive Oil, 2 tbsp Red Wine Vinegar & 1/4 tsp Brown Sugar. Add a pinch of Salt & Pepper and blend until combined. Check the seasoning, adding more sugar, salt or vinegar to taste. Pour over pasta, mix well & chill for 30 minutes.
Once pasta salad is well chilled, gently stir in 1/4 cup shredded Parmesan (sub 1tbsp Nutritional Yeast for vegan option), 2 tbsp toasted Pine Nuts & 2 tbsp torn fresh Basil Leaves. Season to taste, drizzle with 1 tsp Balsamic Glaze & transfer to your BEAST Tumbler to enjoy later. Don't forget to pack your spoon!
