  • 4 c whole wheat pasta

  • ½ red bell pepper
  • 1-2 radishes chopped fine

  1. Cook the pasta according to package instructions.  Drain and rinse well when finished and set aside.
  2. Chop all veggies and add to a large bowl.
  3. Add all dressing ingredients to your blender, including the liquid from the can of beans and blend on high until smooth.  It may look a little thin, that’s ok, the pasta will soak it up.
  4. Gently toss pasta and veggies together and fold in dressing.  Gently stir until everything is well coated.
  5. Cover and chill in the refrigerator for at least 1-2 hours before serving.
