    8 oz Quinoa Penne Pasta
    3 cups zucchini, thinly sliced
    1 medium onion, thinly sliced
    1 medium Red Bell Pepper, thinly sliced
    16 Cherry tomatoes, sliced in half
    1/2 cup Annies Organic Goddess Dressing or your favorite Italian type salad dressing


Thinly slice vegetables and toss lightly with salt. Set aside 5 minutes. Add vegetables to heated saute pan and cook until slightly tender about 4-5 minutes.

Add cherry tomatoes to large mixing bowl with 1/2 of salad dressing. When vegetables are slightly tender remove from heat and add to mixing bowl. Toss well.

While vegetables are cooking, cook pasta according to package directions. When pasta is cooked, drain and add hot pasta to vegetable mixture and stir well . DO NOT RINSE!!! Cover and allow to cool for 20-30 minutes before you taste it. Add remaing salad dressing if you prefer a moister pasta salad. As pasta cools it will absorb more dressing.

Adjust seasoning to taste with additional salt and pepper if needed.

Makes 8 1 cup servings

Variations: Add cooked chicken breast, canned tuna or salmon, mozzerella cheese, feta cheese, toasted pine nuts, raw walnuts.
