Fresh Green Pasta Salad recipe 80
pasta, spinach spaghetti

Break the spaghetti strands into thirds. Cook the spaghetti in a large quantity of boiling water until tender (about 8 min). Drain and set aside.
Whisk together in a small bowl the mayonnaise, garlic, vinegar, and curry powder. Add this to the cooked spaghetti and gently mix.
Scrape the asparagus and cut each spear on the diagonal into 1" pieces. Steam these pieces into a small amount of boiling water 5 min. Drain and stir into the spaghetti.
Cut the zucchini in half lengthwise. Slice each half crosswise into ¼ inch pieces. Stir these into the spaghetti.
Cut the snow peas on the diagonal into ¾ inch slices. Stir these into the spaghetti. Stir in the mushrooms and tomatoes.
Combine the parsley and basil. Shower the salad with the combined herbs but do not toss. Salad can be served now or covered and refrigerated.
If chilled, let it return nearly to room temperature for best flavor.
