  • 1 package cauliflower pasta or gluten-free pasta, a shorter cut like Rotini or Penne is ideal
  • 2 cups quartered cherry tomatoes
  • 1 jar Kalamata olives, sliced
  • 3 tablespoons roughly chopped fresh basil Parmesan cheese, to taste

1. For the pasta, boil the pasta per the directions on the package.
2. For the dressing, whisk the olive oil with the lemon juice, lemon zest, basil, oregano, thyme, garlic powder, onion powder and salt. Set aside.
3. Once the pasta is cooked, drain and allow to fully cool on the counter or in the fridge. Once cooled, add the tomatoes, olives, basil, and Parmesan cheese if using, and toss until thoroughly combined. Add the dressing and toss again.
4. Serve immediately or refrigerate until ready to eat.
