I think my love of pasta would have to go back to my toddler days. I remember my grandmother cooking a delicious pasta dinner every Sunday. It wasn’t until I started cooking my own Sunday dinners that I realized that the secret to a delicious pasta dish was to use a few high-quality ingredients.

I recommend using Academia Barilla in all of your pasta dishes. Academia Barilla is a premium, quality pasta line.

I participated in Mom Blog Tour Summer Fancy Food Show (#MomBlogTourFF) on behalf of Wendy’s Bloggers. I received Academia Barilla products to facilitate my review, but my opinions and the recipe are my own.

Antipasti Pasta Salad

Academia Barilla pasta is 100% grown, cultivated and made in Italy with durum wheat. Doesn’t it feel good to know where you food comes from?

For this Antipasti Pasta Recipe, I decided to use the bowtie variety. Academia Barilla is a 100% Bronze Die pasta. This makes for a rough surface that sauce can cling to. Perfect for the olive oil sauce in this recipe. Every single bite of the pasta offers a true al dente texture.

I love to make our own Italian dressing out of a packet mix for this recipe.

Wow! looks so good! I have never tried Artichoke hearts but I think I would like them! Do they taste similar to cooked cabbage? I wonder if this would taste good with cooked cabbage in place of it for my budget.
