Recipe Information

Recipe Created By: Amy Hugon


1 16 oz pkg rice pasta, preferably Tinkyada
1/4 cup dried tomatoes
1/2 cup dried diced carrots
1/2 cup dried diced bell peppers
1 cup canola oil
1 cup vinegar
1 cup sugar
3-4 Tbsp Italian seasoning
1 head broccoli florets, chopped


Boil rice pasta per directions. I prefer the Tinkyada little kid's shapes. Drain. Without rinsing, mix the dried vegetables into the pasta and let sit.

Separately, blend the oil, vinegar, sugar, and spices. Stir the pasta / vegetable blend and the broccoli into the oil mixture, and refrigerate. Flavor improves if you refrigerate overnight.

You could use alternative vegetables as desired. One yummy recent variation was to omit the broccoli and add two drained 15 ounce cans of marinated artichoke hearts.
