Recipe Ingredients for Main Dish Delish Summer Pasta Salad

18 1/2 oz dreamfields rotini
1 1/2 cup celery, chopped
2 bell peppers, chopped
1 large cucumber, peeled
2 medium tomatoes, chopped
1 1/2 cup Newman's Own Lighten Up Italian Dressing
6 tbsp Nayonaise
1 1/2 tablespoons Dijon mustard
1 1/2 teaspoon dill weed
3/4 teaspoon sea salt
2 cups garbanzo beans

Recipe Directions for Main Dish Delish Summer Pasta Salad

  1. This is adapted from a rotini, tuna fish, and mini shrimp salad my mother-in-law makes. I've veganized it by modifying the dressing, eliminating the seafood and adding mashed chickpeas instead. It's a quick and easy dinner for those hot summer nights when you don't want to eat something hot!

  2. Cook pasta according to box. While pasta is cooking, wash and chop the celery, pepper, cucumber, tomato, and onion. You want nice chunks of the veggies.

  3. After pasta is done cooking, drain and rinse under cold water to cool the pasta. I also take the empty cooking pot and run it under cold water so that the pot can cool down and I can use it to mix the pasta salad.

  4. After pasta is drained well, return to cooled pot. Add chopped veggies.

  5. Next, whisk together the Italian dressing, Vegenaise, Dijon mustard, dill weed, salt, and pepper until smooth. Add to pasta and veggies.

  6. Finally, mash your chickpeas with a potato masher until crumbly. Add chickpeas to pasta and veggies and mix well.

  7. Enjoy!
