Green Goddess Pasta Salad

My herbs are growing like crazy so I thought it was time to use some of them to make green goddess dressing.
You can whip this up in no time at all.  Find the recipe here:  http://octoberfarm.blogspot.com/2011/06/green-goddess-salad-dressing.html

Just throw it all in your food processor.

Lightly simmer your onion and garlic just to take the bite out of it.

This is very good as a dressing for a regular salad but I decided to make a pasta salad with it.

This makes enough that you can use it both ways.

I diced some fresh mozzarella, tomatoes and diced bacon.

This makes about 2 cups.

I tossed some rigatoni with the cheese mix and placed it on some romaine lettuce.  Then I sprinkled it with some blueberries and currants I had just picked in my garden.  I am using a lot of my currants in salads.  I made some small garlic toasts to go with it.
