Tomato Basil Pasta Salad

I had forgotten all about this recipe that was originally given to me by my friend Debby. It is perfect for this time of the year when the tomatoes are at their peak and fresh basil is available.
We had a small dinner party on Friday night and I served this pasta salad; it was delicious with grilled chicken and a green salad.

In a blender combine 1st 6 ingredients. Pour all but 1 cup of dressing over warm pasta. Refrigerate. Add reserved dressing and diced tomato just before serving.
