For those of you who are eating gluten free, let me tell you that Tinkyada brand pasta is the best I've ever tried! It holds together, doesn't get mushy, and tastes good! Here's a quick and easy gluten-free pasta salad recipe that everyone will love - and no one will even know that it's gluten free unless you tell them! As you can see, it also looks beautiful on the table! It's probably the veggies, not just the red plastic bowl from Walmart. ;-)
1 bag Tinkyada rotini and a cup of Tinkyada macaroni. Cook according to package instructions. Test pasta BEFORE the time limit just to make sure you don't overcook it. Trust me - you don't want soggy pasta. Pour cooked pasta into a colander to drain water. Run cold water over pasta until it is thoroughly chilled. Place in a large bowl.
Now add the following ingredients:
1 large red bell pepper, seeded and cubed
1 green bell pepper, seeded and cubed
1/2 jalapeno pepper, seeded and minced
Small zucchini, skin on, cut into chunks
Small yellow summer squash, skin on, cut into chunks
1/2 onion, diced
1 can pitted ripe olives, drained
Stir in Kraft Zesty Italian dressing to taste. I used about a cup. Add a little coarse ground black pepper.
That's it! See? Quick, simple, and tasty!
