Pesto Pasta Salad

I love summery salads. This is one that I make somewhat often. It is very versatile so I add whatever veggies I have on hand at the time. Tomatoes, peppers, olives, onions, cukes, zukes, carrots, etc. The measurements for everything but the oil, water and pesto mix is a guess. I just cook up a bunch of pasta. I especially like to use bow ties for this one. It makes me feel fancy.
