With summer upon us, also comes backyard BBQs and gatherings. Having food allergies, I used to feel awkward, not knowing what to bring. People used to say,”Oh it’s gluten free?” or “Umm, no thanks”. I used to feel uncomfortable when I would bring some of my dishes.

Not anymore! You can bring a great pasta salad and people will beg you for the recipe! You can make it simpler by using a bottled dressing. Personally, I think these recipes taste far better!    Also, using Catelli gluten free pasta, no one will even realize that the pasta is gluten free! Catelli’s gluten free macaroni tastes just like regular pasta.

 Pasta Salad Two Ways and Catelli Giveaway (Gluten Free)

2 c. dry Catelli gluten free macaroni

1/2-2/3 c. Vinaigrette Dressing or Ginger Sesame Dressing

1/2 c. chopped red onion

3 c. various chopped vegetables

sea salt and pepper to taste

Add dry macaroni to 6 cups of boiling water. Add 1/2 tsp. sea salt to water.

Cook macaroni for 3 1/2 -4 minutes. Drain (never rinse), then mix 1/3 of the dressing into warm macaroni. Mixing some of the dressing into the warm pasta helps the pasta absorb the flavour.

Let cool and mix vegetables and dressing into salad. Add a little more dressing if desired. Salt and pepper to taste. If using Ginger Sesame Dressing, top with 1 Tbsp. sesame seeds for an added touch.
