Italian Veggie Pasta Salad

Italian Veggie Pasta Salad

This veggie pasta salad pairs simple, fresh ingredients with a flavorful vinaigrette dressing.

Crunchy bell peppers, red onion, broccoli, and peppery arugula make it a colorful and satisfying dish.

We used brown rice pasta, but you can substitute your favorite gluten-free or whole-grain pasta.

Fusilli is perfect for pasta salads because its spiral shape captures the dressing, vegetables, and crumbles of feta cheese.
