Recipe by Hebrew Nationalreg

A colorful main dish pasta salad combining sliced Hebrew National® beef franks, yellow peppers, peas, and tomatoes tossed with vinaigrette and served warm. For variety, substitute your child's favorite summer veggies or your child's favorite shaped pasta. For a "lightened" version of this recipe, combine 2 tablespoons olive oil, 2 tablespoons white wine vinegar, 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt and 1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper for dressing and proceed with recipe as directed. Tip: Don't have white wine vinegar on hand? Substitute 1 teaspoon grated lemon zest and 1/3 cup freshly squeezed lemon juice.

Directions

  1. Prepare pasta according to package directions, omitting salt. Drain; set aside. Meanwhile, whisk olive oil, vinegar, salt, and black pepper together in large bowl to make dressing; set aside. Cut franks lengthwise in half; then slice into 1/4-inch-thick half moons.
  2. Heat large skillet over high heat for 1 minute. Add franks; cook and stir 5 minutes or until lightly browned. Add tomatoes, bell pepper, and peas; cook an additional 5 minutes, stirring occasionally, or until peas are hot and peppers are crisp-tender.
  3. Place pasta into bowl with prepared dressing. Add frank mixture; toss to coat all with dressing. Serve hot.
