Vegan Summer Pasta Salad (The Awesome Green) serves rigatoni pasta with cooked kidney beans, cherry tomatoes, zucchini, kale, mixed greens, peppers, broccoli and shallots. The dressing is made with olive oil and lemon juice, basil, turmeric, garlic, pepper, mustard and ginger.
Pasta salad is a good way to use up leftover veggies in the fridge. Pasta is thought of as not healthy, but if you use it as a base for lots of fresh veggies, it’s fine. Try to find a good organic pasta brand, and go for gluten-free if you find that it suits you better. But for most people, regular dry pasta is fine.
