For the Pasta Salad:
For noticeably better results, grate your own parmesan cheese from a good quality block of cheese.
If your pine nuts are not toasted already, you can toast them quickly in the oven or stovetop: mix pine nuts with a bit of olive oil, single layer on a baking sheet and bake in oven at 350F for about 5 minutes. For stovetop, stir pine nuts with a bit of olive oil in a skillet for about 2 minutes on medium heat. Once lightly browned and aromatic, your pine nuts are perfectly toasted.
