You can also choose from the many different short pasta shapes available in your local market. For a more substantial garden pasta salad, throw in some cooked chicken or shrimp. Baby arugula or fresh baby spinach would be a fine addition to this healthy and appealing garden pasta salad recipeBring a large pot of salted water to a boil. Cut the asparagus in 1-inch pieces. Blanch the asparagus, green beans and snow peas in the boiling water for 3 minutes. Lift out with a slotted spoon, reserving the boiling water for the pasta.

STEP 2

Bring the water back to a boil, add the pasta and cook until done, about 8 minutes. Add the peas for the last 2 minutes of cooking. Drain. Rinse in cold water and drain again. Toss with a teaspoon of olive oil to prevent sticking.

STEP 3

Prepare the Lemon Dressing according to the recipe and add the basil leaves as you process the dressing.

STEP 4

Toss the vegetables and pasta in a large bowl with the dressing. Garnish with thinly sliced or shaved red radishes.
