  1. Bring a large pot of lightly salted water to a boil. Cook fusilli in the boiling water, stirring occasionally, until tender yet firm to the bite, about 12 minutes. Drain.
  2. Combine basil, Parmesan cheese, pine nuts, oil, and garlic in a food processor; blend to make pesto.
  3. 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.

Delicious pasta salad! You could probably use jarred pesto as a shortcut.
