Born and raised in an Italian household, I cook Italian 90 percent of the time. Of all the pasta salads out there, I came up with this one which my family loves best.
After cooking cavatelli, rinse and allow to partially cool.
In a large serving bowl blend cavatelli with remaining ingredients.
In a bowl, mix oil, vinegar, garlic, and other seasonings.
Pour over cavatelli mixture and toss. Refrigerate until serving.
