Bowl of Bows Pasta Salad

This Bowl of Bows Pasta Salad is a family favourite! The dressing is tangy, garlicky and so delicious. It pairs perfectly with summer BBQ recipes.


  • 18 oz package of dried pasta bows
  • 1/2 cup cooking oil
  • 1/3 cup vinegar

  • 2 tsp parsley flakes
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1/4 tsp ground pepper

  1. Boil the noodles until they are al dente. When they are done, drain then rinse them with cold water.
  2. While the noodles are boiling, you can make the dressing.
  3. Combine the oil, vinegar, all the spices, green onion, and parmesan cheese.
  4. Toss the cooked noodles in the dressing.
  5. Then toss in the black olives.
  6. Chill for at least 4 hours.
