Smoky Pasta Primavera Salad
We love smoky pasta primavera at our house, be sure to use the smoky Gouda!
- Serves: 6 persons
- ½(16 ounce) package rotini pasta
- 1teaspoon salt
- 1teaspoon olive oil
- ½red bell pepper, diced
- ½green bell pepper, diced
- 1cup diced smoked Gouda cheese
- ½cup chopped fresh parsley
- ⅓cup lemon balsamic vinegar
- ⅔cup soybean oil
- 1teaspoon chopped fresh dill
- ½teaspoon garlic salt
Step 1Bring a large pot of water to a boil; add rotini, salt, and olive oil. Cook rotini at a boil until tender yet firm to the bite, about 8 minutes. Drain pasta, rinse with cold water, and transfer to a large bowl.
Step 2Add red bell pepper, green bell pepper, Gouda cheese, and parsley to rotini.
Step 3Pour balsamic vinegar in a small bowl. Add soybean oil in a small stream, whisking constantly until mixture emulsifies. Mix in dill and garlic salt. Slowly drizzle just enough of the vinaigrette over the pasta mixture until the pasta glistens. You may not need all of the vinaigrette, so store any leftovers for another use.
