A terrific make-ahead, this dish is excellent served immediately after it is prepared or it can be refrigerated and served later.

Ingredients

1 pkg. (10 oz.) pasta or noodles
Boiling salted water
1/3 cup olive or salad oil
2 medium tomatoes, peeled, seeded, diced
1 bunch green onions, thinly sliced
2 stalks celery, thinly sliced
1 small carrot shredded
1 green pepper, chopped
1 small cucumber, peeled, seeded and diced
1 small zucchini, diced
1/4 cup chopped fresh basil or 2 Tbs. dried basil leaves
1/2 to 1 tsp. salt
1/8 tsp. black pepper
Additional olive oil, optional.

Directions

Cook pasta in salted boiling water about 6 to 8 minutes or until al dente. Drain. Rinse under cold water. Drain well.

Place into large mixing bowl. Drizzle oil over pasta, tossing well. Transfer to wide serving dish. Sprinkle with the vegetables and basil.

At the table, add salt, black pepper to taste and more olive oil, if used.

Garnish with parsley and/or some green peas.

Comments

Good served with Crusty bread and butter. If served as an accompaniment, it goes well with fish or chicken, broiled, barbecued or baked.
