Fiesta Pasta Salad

Music: Stevie Wonder, The Original Musiquarium I

Here's a new and delicious variation on macaroni salad. I used fusili and added celery. From Sarah Kramer's La Dolce Vegan.

















3 C uncooked smallish pasta (your choice: fusili, bow ties, penne, elbows, etc.)

Dressing:
3/4 C Vegenaise
2 tbsp parsley
1 tbsp red wine vinegar
1 tbsp agave nectar
1 tsp dried basil
1/2 tsp paprika
1/2 tsp sea salt
freshly ground black pepper to taste
1/4 tsp garlic powder

Salad:
1 large stalk celery (or 2 celery hearts), diced small
1 large carrot, diced fine (or grated)
1 small onion (sweet or red), diced superfine
1 19-oz. can kidney beans, drained & rinsed

Cook pasta according to package directions then rinse in cold water and drain. Combine all ingredients in a large bowl. Divine!
