The Creamy Bow Tie Pasta Salad Recipe is a delectable and straightforward side dish, perfect for gatherings, barbecues, or a satisfying lunch. Drawing inspiration from Italian Pasta Salad, this dish is distinguished by its rich and irresistible creamy dressing.

The ingredients include a 12 oz box of bow tie pasta, cooked with a bit of salt in water for optimal flavor. Broccoli florets, cherry tomatoes (or grape tomatoes), blue cheese crumbles (or any preferred cheese), and chopped parsley are combined to create a vibrant and flavorful ensemble. The broccoli is cooked and cooled with ice water, contributing a refreshing element to the salad.

The dressing is a blend of olive oil, balsamic vinegar, red wine vinegar, sugar (to taste), salt (to taste), black pepper (to taste), and minced garlic (1 clove). The dressing is mixed with the other ingredients and set aside. For those who enjoy a creamy dressing, the option to add ½ cup of mayonnaise to the pasta before serving is provided, enhancing the luscious texture.

When ready to serve, the cooked pasta, broccoli, and tomatoes are combined and drizzled with the dressing. The dish is topped with blue cheese crumbles and chopped parsley for added flavor and visual appeal. The Creamy Bow Tie Pasta Salad is suggested to be served alongside grilled salmon, chicken, or pork chop, offering a well-balanced and satisfying meal.
