  • 1/4 cup scallions, finely chopped

  1. Cook your pasta according the directions. I used fusili here because I find it holds the pasta salad dressing so well.
  2. After the pasta is done, mix it with vegetables like edamame, bell pepper, scallions, carrots, and for optional texture add red cabbage or beets.
  3. Add Thai peanut dressing and combine all. Serve on plates or in bowls, then sprinkle with optional sesame seeds.
