    I agree, the nutty taste of pine nuts is perfect finish to pasta dishes and a whole lot more!

      Yes! Pine nuts are pretty much perfect on anything :-)

    Ahh, this is my kind of comfort food -I probably eat a version of this weekly (esp. in the summer) often using fresh mozz but love love it with ricotta too. I’ve been thinking about you while hearing about these fires – please stay safe and keep us posted on your situation!

      Great cooks make pasta salads alike :-) Thanks for your kind thoughts Deanna! The firefighters are making progress, and it is starting to cool down, so, finger crossed all the fires will be under control soon :-)

    What a lovely salad! I so love pine nuts but I also SO hate how pricey they are. I have a hidden stash but often I’ll just toast some walnuts too; they’re equally (well, almost) good with a salad like this. I’m making ricotta next week. I’m then making this salad. I’m not kidding. :)

    Thanks Barb! I hear ya’ about the pine nuts being expensive-only drawback as far as I can see. I buy mine at Trader Joes or Costco, and fortunately a little go a long way since they are so flavorful. I think walnuts would be delicious on this as well, especially toasted :-)

    Ooh, this looks wonderful! I love pasta dishes like this, especially when the fresh tomatoes and basil are in season in our garden. YUM!

      Thanks so much Amy! I just bought some tomatoes and basil to plant in my rooftop garden, so I’m thinking we’ll be enjoying this all summer long :-)

    This would definitely be a perfect Summer dish! I love adding herbs to anything lately, my new option instead of salt:-) Your recipe looks fabulous! My weeknight dinner I tend to eat a lot, a hearty vegetarian quesadilla! Yum, Hugs, Terra

    Such a beautiful, simple pasta dish, EA — and thank you for sharing the story behind it. You know, this is similar in ingredients (if they were blended) to a pesto alla siciliana — I think the only difference would be the addition of walnuts. And I agree with you, the combination of ricotta, tomato and pine nut is sublime!
