Confetti Pasta Salad

Ingredients

1 package Namaste Foods Pasta Pisavera Dinner
5-6 tbsp. olive oil in all (preferably extra virgin)
1 tsp. lemon juice (more or less to taste)
1/3 cup sliced black olives
1/3 cup finely chopped yellow squash
¼ cup finely chopped fresh parsley
1/3 cup finely chopped red pepper
¼ cup finely chopped green onions (optional)

Directions

  1. Cook the pasta in boiling salted water until done, about 7-10 minutes, stirring occasionally. Drain and rinse briefly in cold water.
  2. In small bowl, mix together olive oil, lemon juice and seasoning packet to taste. Combine dressing, pasta and veggies and toss gently. Add salt and pepper to taste. This dish is wonderful served at room temperature or slightly chilled.
  3. Helpful Hint Once refrigerated, rice pasta (like rice) can get a bit crunchy. Either pull the pasta out ahead of time or a quick minute or two in the microwave will do the trick. (Add a little more oil if needed, too.)

Variations

  • Add other chopped or marinated vegetables and feta or parmesan cheese.
