DIRECTIONS

  • Cook pasta in boiling salted water according to directions, (usually about 10 minutes) but do not overcook. Mushy pasta will not work well for this recipe. Add a dash of olive oil to keep pasta from sticking while cooking.
  • In a bamboo or other type of steamer, steam the julienned carrot, fresh peas and green beans for about 5 minutes until just tender. Alternately, you could parboil them for just a few minutes to get them softened just a bit.
  • Drain and rinse pasta under cold water in a colander. Add to large bowl.
  • Mix steamed carrots, green beans and peas together into pasta. Add red bell pepper, green onions/scallions, and chopped tomatoes.
  • Mix ingredients for dressing together, and pour over pasta and veggies. Mix well to combine.
  • Place lid or plastic wrap over the bowl and let chill in refrigerator for at least an hour to let flavors meld.
