  1. Cook pasta according to package instructions.  Drain pasta when ready and rinse under cold water until cool.  Drain throughly before adding to a large bowl.
  2. Prep and chop all the veggies and cheese while the pasta is cooking.
  3. Add veggies and cheese to the bowl with the cooled pasta.
  4. Mix together dressing ingredients and add to the pasta, veggies and cheese in the bowl.  Toss to combine and serve.


I used jarred roasted red peppers and marinated artichokes that I got at Trader Joes.

If you don’t have white balsamic vinegar you can use red wine vinegar instead.

Make sure to thoroughly drain the pasta before adding it to the mixing bowl.
