    Cookgirl's Note:

    Do you hate broccoli? You should try broccolini. It is similar to broccoli but more tender and mild in flavor. It is a hybrid vegetable of a cross between broccoli and Chinese kale. This salad can be served either warm or cold. Use any "tube" shaped pasta: penne, ziti, rigatoni, etc. (I like to use fresh pasta for this recipe.) Printed in our local natural foods' store flyer.

    1. 1
      Cook the pasta until al dente. Drain and set aside.

      In a large serving bowl combine the broccolini with the cooked pasta. Gently stir in the chickpeas and *walnut pieces.
    5. 5
      Whisk together the dressing ingredients in a small non-reactive bowl.
    6. 6
      Pour dressing over the broccoli-pasta mixture. Toss gently to coat.
