Gazpacho Pasta Salad

Gazpacho Pasta Salad

Yield: 6 servings

8 ounces medium-size shaped pasta,
(pipette or cavatappi)
3 tablespoons olive oil
2 tablespoons red wine vinegar
3 medium size cloves garlic, finely chopped
1/2 teaspoon paprika
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 (14 1/2 ounce) can diced tomatoes with jalapeno chiles
1 large sweet green pepper, cored, seeded and cut into
1/2-inch pieces (about 1 cup)
2 medium size ribs celery, cut into 1/2-inch pieces (about 1 cup)
1/2 seedless cucumber, peeled, quartered lengthwise and
sliced crosswise into 1/2-inch thick pieces (about 1 1/4 cups)

Cook pasta according to package directions, to the “al dente” stage. Drain and rinse, then drain again. Set aside...........

While pasta is cooking, whisk oil, vinegar, garlic, paprika and salt in a large stainless steel bowl. Add tomatoes (undrained!), green pepper, celery and cucumber; toss well.. Add pasta; toss to coat evenly.

Refrigerate, covered, 30 minutes to chill and blend flavors
