Caesar butterflies

Yield: 1 Servings

Measure Ingredient
⅓ cup Red-wine vinegar
2 teaspoons Dijon-style mustard
1 Clove of garlic; finely minced
1 pinch Sugar
Coarse salt; to taste
½ cup Olive oil
Freshly ground black pepper; to taste
½ pounds Farfalle; cooked al dente

The tangy flavor of a Caesar salad is yours in this main dish, a light pasta salad that will tantalize even the most sophisticated palates.

Place cooked pasta in a large bowl and toss with 3 tablespoons dressing.

Before serving, add salad greens, cucumbers and walnuts. Toss with 4 tablespoons dressing, or more if desired. (Save remainder for another use.) Season with salt and pepper, then toss again.

With a vegetable peeler, shave thin slices of Parmesan atop salad or grate coarsely. Serve immediately.

Serves 8.
