My 10-year-old daughter Maya and I created this easy but delicious pasta salad, featuring her favorite pesto flavors. This salad is great as the center of a light dinner, or as a side dish.

  • Combine basil, Parmesan cheese, pine nuts, oil, and garlic in a food processor; blend to make pesto.

  • Toss pasta with pesto and mix in red onion, radicchio, and mayonnaise. Season with salt and pepper. Refrigerate for at least 30 minutes before serving.

Cook's Note:

I prefer using the corkscrew pasta medley.
