AZ, this is marvelous. I didn't have shallots so just used onion and I added some red bell pepper that was already cut and left from another use. The pepper added color as I had wee yellow tomatoes and it worked wonderfully in the salad. Love that the veggies are lightly cooked but not long enough to lose their crispness (I did let the onion cook longer than that the rest as this one was really strong and it needed to mellow a bit). The salad is filling and I could very easily use it as a summer meal very happily. This is going into my Favorites of 2012 cookbook :D. Thanks so much for posting this one hon.
Great fresh pasta salad! Loved all those delicious summer veggies. I used whole wheat pasta and topped with shredded parmesan as I had some on hand. Looking forward to having the leftovers for lunch :) Thanks for sharing your recipe!
