JR’s summer pasta

i want to eat this all summer long.

cook 1 lb multi-colored pasta (check out the pic below of pasta from trader joe- it’s perfect for this dish.) in salted water until al dente. rinse with cold water to stop cooking.

while pasta is cooking, put in a large bowl: 1 cucumber, slice in half long & use a tablespoon to scoop out seeds, then cut into half longs again and cube small; 1/2 of each: orange, yellow and red bell peppers chopped to same size as cuc; 1 pint grape tomatoes, quartered; 8 oz pepper jack cheese, also cubed small.

throw it all together and add salad dressing to taste (~1 cup).

walk away. let it rest in the fridge. make it a day or two ahead of time so the flavors can meld.

this dish has such vibrant color. it screams SPRING and SUMMER.
