I took this to a potluck dinner at church last night...It looked so pretty in the glass bowl...what a great pasta salad.... all kinds of good things and tastes in there!
I used ham instead of proscuitto..just because I had it.
This makes a lot, so be sure to share it!!

Layered Picnic Pasta Salad

12 oz. Bow Ties or other medium pasta shape

1 cup frozen green peas, thawed
3 plum tomatoes, sliced
1 cup fresh mushrooms, sliced
2 oz. proscuitto, thinly sliced
2 tbsp. fresh basil, chopped
3 tbsp. parmesan cheese, freshly grated

Cook pasta according to package directions, drain. Return to

tomatoes, mushrooms, and proscuitto on pasta.

Sprinkle with basil and pour remaining dressing evenly over
Sprinkle with Parmesan cheese.
