Boil and Mix pasta

This is called "Boil and Mix" pasta.

The only cooking required is to boil the pasta.

Boiling pasta isn't normally done in cast iron, but you certainly can if you want to.

For that matter, you can mix and serve this dish in cast iron too.

Boil and drain your choice of pasta. I used rotini.

Then mix the cooked pasta with canned tomatoes*, black olives, artichoke hearts, almonds, cubed provolone cheese, and pesto.**

*I prefer canned whole tomatoes that I cut up myself. It's more flavorful.

**I make my own pesto in a blender, using fresh basil, olive oil, parmesan cheese, almonds or pine nuts, and minced garlic. Lemon juice optional.

Top with parmesan cheese.
