   12       oz           Fusilli or other spiral-
                         Shaped pasta
    5       tb           Olive oil
      2/3   c            Pine nuts -- toasted
      2/3   c            Chopped drained oil-packed
                         Sun-dried tomatoes (about
                         3 ounces)
      1/2   c            Fresh parsley -- chopped
      1/2   c            Grated Parmesan cheese
                         (about 1-1/2 ounces)
 
   Cook fusilli pasta in large pot of boiling salted water until just tender
   but still firm to bite. Drain pasta well. Heat 3 tablespoons olive oil in
   heavy large skillet over high heat. Add pasta and fry until beginning to
   crisp at edges, stirring frequently, about 10 minutes. Transfer pasta to
   large bowl. Add remaining 2 tablespoons olive oil to same skillet. Add
   toasted pine nuts and sun-dried tomatoes and stir over high heat until just
   warmed through, about 1 minute. Pour pine nut mixture over pasta. Add
   chopped parsley and grated Parmesan cheese and toss to blend. Season to
   taste with salt and pepper.
