Minestrone Pasta Salad
(Serves 8)

Everybody loves the soup. Here's the salad! Plus, it's served at room temperature, just perfect for outdoor meals.

  • 12 ounces fingerling or baby red potatoes
  • 8 ounces green beans, cut in half
  • 1 pound asparagus, trimmed and cut into 1-inch pieces
  • 1 pound gemelli or tubetti pasta
  • 1/2 cup pesto
  • 1 15 1/2-ounce can cannellini beans (drained and rinsed)
  • 1 6-ounce jar roasted peppers, sliced into strips
  • Salt and pepper to taste

In a medium saucepan, cover potatoes with water and bring to a boil until tender when pierced with a fork (about 10 minutes). Spread potatoes on a baking sheet to cool, then slice into 1/2-inch coins.

Bring a large pot of water to a boil and add 1 teaspoon salt. Prepare a bowl of ice water. Carefully add green beans and asparagus to the boiling water and boil until bright green (1-2 minutes). Rinse with cold water and then submerge vegetables in the ice water until they are cool. Drain, pat dry and set aside.

Cook pasta until al dente. Drain and put in a large bowl to cool.

Once the pasta has cooled, toss in the potatoes, asparagus, green beans and the remaining ingredients. Add salt and pepper to taste. Serve immediately or this recipe can be prepared 1 to 2 hours before serving.
