DIRECTIONS

  • Combine oil, vinegar, garlic, salt, thyme, and oregano in a large bowl, whisking to combine.
  • Add chickpeas, hominy and mozzarella cubes and stir to combine.
  • Cover and refrigerate for as long as you can to let the flavors combine (or let it sit out just while the pasta cooks-- it will still tasty).
  • Cook the pasta shells according to package directions.
  • Drain and rinse in cold water.
  • Add pasta to the marinated ingredients, stirring to combine.
  • Eat hot, warm, room temperature, or cold (the salad makes great leftovers), sprinkling each serving with the optional Parmesan cheese separately.
  • Note: As you can imagine, this recipe could have many, many different vegetables added to it and many different cheeses would make tasty additions.
  • I sometimes add olives, grape tomatoes, scallions, etc.
