Pasta Salad with Extra Virgin Olive Oil


Pasta Salad Recipe:

This recipe is one of my favorites.  It's light and fresh and the only dressing is Papa Vince Extra Virgin Olive Oil with some salt & pepper.  In this video we used rotini pasta but it's sure to taste even better with Papa Vince Busiate pasta.  Make sure you watch the video with cousin Cati who was visiting from Sicily.

 

  • Preparation Time: 30 minutes
  • Active Cooking Time: 30 minutes
  • Yield: 5 servings

Ingredients:

Instructions:

Heat water to rolling point and add salt to taste. Add pasta and cook until it is "AL DENTE".
  • Once the pasta is ready, pour cold water into the pot before draining, to keep the pasta from sticking to the pot.
  • Drain the pasta and let it cool. 
  • Steam carrots, green peas, asparagus, broccoli, and potatoes all separately.
  • Cut all cherry tomatoes in half.
  • Place the pasta in a salad bowl and add Papa Vince Extra Virgin Olive Oil as much or as little as you like.
  • Add all cooked vegetables one-by-one to the bowl as you mix the salad.
  • Add salt and pepper to taste.
  • Enjoy it!!                                                                                                                     Click here to buy Papa Vince Essential Ingredients.

    We love our customers to share their healthy recipe ideas with us and we can't wait to try this dish ourselves, what better combination than chicken, spinach, tomatoes and mushrooms.

    Linguine with Anchovies & Fresh Breadcrumbs

    We met Teresa in Messina who invited us into her beautiful Italian home & showed us how to make some of her favorite family recipes.  This Linguine recipe is one that she started making just to get creative in the kitchen.  The combination of the anchovies and the omega 9 fatty acids in the Extra Virgin Olive Oil make this a health boosting recipe.  If you're concerned about the linguine and want a more nutritious option, why not use Papa Vince Tumminia Pasta which is made with ancient grain and contains 6 times more fiber than regular pasta.
