Penne Nicoise

Posted for Zaar World Tour 2005. A vegetarian Salade Nicoise with pasta. In France, this salad is only served in spring and summer, so use the freshest vegetables you can find. Pasta cooks with potatoes and beans, which makes it easy and fast. From Vegetarian Times Cooks Mediterranean. Have not made this yet.

    This is a good quick salad. I used yellow fleshed new potatoes, a red onion and green olives (family preference). Tomatoes aren't in season yet and I bet this would be even yummier later on when the local tomatoes are available. Made for Jammin' Java Jivers ZWT5

    A quick pasta salad, based on traditional Salade Niçoise. This might be a good dish for unexpected company. Cooking the beans and potatoes together, with pasta, does speed up the preparation, but I think it loses some of the distinctness of a traditional nicoise. The pasta effectively stretches the other ingredients, but again perhaps at the loss of some taste.
