Number of Servings: 8

Ingredients

    1 tablespoon sesame seeds
    4-inch piece fresh ginger root, peeled
    3 tablespoons Dijon mustard
    2 tablespoons rice vinegar (or white vinegar)
    1 tablespoon sesame oil
    2 teaspoons sugar
    1/2 teaspoon soy sauce
    16 ounces bow tie pasta, cooked and drained
    8 ounces snow pea pods, blanched
    1/2 cup diced roasted red pepper
    1/2 cup diced celery
    1/2 cup chopped green onions

Tips

Snow pea pods only need 90 seconds for blanching. I just added them to the pot of pasta that last minute and a half of cooking.


Directions

1. In small skillet, toast sesame seeds over medium heat until light brown (about 2 minutes); set aside for garnish.
2. Finely grate ginger into a small bowl. Roll the grated ginger into a ball and gently squeeze juice into a large mixing bowl (should produce about 2 tablespoons of juice). Add mustard, vinegar, sesame oil, sugar and soy sauce to the ginger juice. Whisk dressing until smooth.
3. Toss together cooked pasta, snow peas, pepper, celery, onions and dressing. Sprinkle with toasted sesame seeds. Chill.

Serving Size: Makes 8 one cup servings
