Are you making this? 
1 pound bow tie pasta; (farfalle)
3/4 cup Pesto; recipe follows
1/2 pint cherry tomatoes; halved
1 cup feta cheese; crumbled
Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper
Olive oil; as needed
5 big handfuls basil leaves; (about 2 hefty bunches)
1/2 cup pine nuts; or 3/4 cup walnuts
1/2 cup Parmesan or Pecorino cheese; fresh grated
1 lemon; Juice of 1
2 cloves garlic; peeled
Kosher salt
20 grinds freshly ground black pepper; (about)
3/4 cup extra-virgin olive oil

Original recipe makes 6



Bring a large pot of salted water to boil. Stir in the bow ties and cook, stirring occasionally, until al dente, about 10 minutes. Drain the pasta and run it under cold water just until it stops steaming. Bounce the pasta around to get rid of as much water as you can.

Dump the pasta into a large serving bowl. Stir in the pesto until the pasta is coated. Toss in the cherry tomatoes and the crumbled feta. Taste the salad and season it as you like with salt and pepper. If it's looking a little dry, add some olive oil and stir it around.


Place all ingredients with 1/2 cup of the oil in a blender and blend. Gradually drizzle in the remaining 1/4 cup of oil until pesto is thick and smooth. Yield: about 1 1/2 cups
