While bowtie pasta is cooking, toast pine nuts in dry skillet until fragrant. Put aside. Add olive oil to skillet and sauté bell pepper, mint, sorrel and garlic. Drain bow tie pasta and add to skillet. Add Italian dressing and pine nuts and toss well.

Serve warm or make ahead and serve chilled.

  • Simple and delicious. Looks beautiful, too. Try to find a bottled sweet italian dressing (I used Zia's) for a change of taste.
