How to make

  4. Steam carrots, green peas, asparagus, broccoli, and potatoes all separately.
  5. Cut all cherry tomatoes in half.
  6. Place the pasta in a salad bowl and add Papa Vince Extra Virgin Olive Oil as much or as little as you like.

  8. Add salt and pepper to taste.
  9. Enjoy it!!

This recipe is one of my favorites.  It's light and fresh and the only dressing is Papa Vince Extra Virgin Olive Oil with some salt & pepper.  In this video we used rotini pasta but it's sure to taste even better with Papa Vince Busiate pasta.  Make sure you watch the video with cousin Cati who was visiting from Sicily.
