It's not very interesting but I usually have conchiglie pasta with mixed bell peppers, sweetcorn, red onion, cherry tomatoes and maybe chickpeas with Italian dressing.

Several handfuls of basil
about a fourth cup of pine nuts
a palm full of walnuts
three or four cloves of garlic
a small shallot
salt
good parm cheese (could use nutritional yeast or just leave out)
good olive oil

Throw in food processor and blend. :p

Pasta + sliced mushrooms + olives + tomatoes + whatever other fresh veggies come to mind + Italian sald dressing (This is my default for picnics, barbeques, or any other occasion where the sald will be unrefrigerated for a while. The maudhrooms kind of *cook* in the dressing if made the night before.))

Pasta + frozen peas + finely diced onions + whatever else strikes your fancy + vegan mayo, salt and pepper.

Pasta + pesto sauce (I posted my recipe in the recipes section) + tomatoes + black olives

Chickpeas added to any of the above for protein and because I LOVE chickpeas.

i make my pesto with basil, garlic, olive oil and salt, various ground nuts. Sometimes I add ground almond if it is getting too basil/centric.
