GRILLED VEGETABLE PASTA SALAD
I’ve learned a lot in the past eight years of cooking. My taste buds have been refined, so I’m utilizing that new information to provide one of the very first recipes I’ve ever published new life. The original recipe for the Grilled Vegetable Pasta Salad was cooked vegetables, pasta, and a bottled vinaigrette. This time, I added a bit of affection by making my creamy balsamic-rich vinaigrette. I used the oven-grilling method (okay, perhaps it’s baking) to make this recipe more accessible to those who do not have an outdoor grill.
COOK ONCE EAT ALL WEEK
I like making large pasta salads that I can eat during the week. This Grilled vegetable pasta salad can stand up well in the refrigerator. The grilled vegetables’ taste is absorbed into the pasta when refrigerated and tastes superior the day after. The balsamic vinaigrette is the most tart the day later and cools out when immersed in the cooked pasta.
If you prefer the dressing to be tangy, use only enough sauce to cover the entire salad immediately to ensure that the salad doesn’t dry out. However, reserve half the sauce shortly before serving (after refrigerating).
DON’T SKIP SALTING THE PASTA WATER
It’s taken me quite a long time to adjust to the advantages of salting pasta cooking water, and pasta salads changed my opinion. Since pasta is the main ingredient of the dish and is the main ingredient, you must ensure it has a great flavor by itself, and having salted cooking water can make a massive difference.
