Special pasta salad

Nowadays, there are more and more people who are allergic or intolerant to gluten.

Gluten is the protein contained in some cereals, such as wheat, oat, rye, spelt & barley. Therefore, pasta or breads do have gluten.

Fortunately, there are always more products with flours without this protein. Corn, rice, quinoa, amaranth, millet or buckwheat flours don’t contain gluten.

But today I also found in the supermarket a type of pasta that is not made of any cereal but of lentils. The only ingredient is: 100% red lentil flour.

So this delicious pasta salad is indeed a good plate of lentils 😉

!! Notice to all the parents of kids who don’t like any pulses: These spirals of pasta will bring happiness and harmony to your family meals.

For 2 persons:

140 gr. of “lentil” pasta

2 small zucchini

varied tomatoes (raf, cherry, yellow…)

Feta cheese (or goat cheese)

some basil leaves

extra virgin olive oil

balsamic vinegar

salt, pepper

………

Pre-heat the oven at 180 degrees.

Wash and cut the zucchini into slices of ½ cm. aprox.

Put them in an oven tray with wax paper, add a pinch of salt, pepper and a drop of oil and bake them for about 15 min. at 180 degrees. Leave them to cool.

They will be roasted but still a bit crunchy.

If you don’t want to turn on the oven just for roasting, you can also “grill” the zucchini in a pan.

For the vinaigrette, put in a glass jar:

2 tablespoons of olive oil + 1 tablespoon of balsamic vinegar + salt & pepper to taste.

Close it and shake it well.

Boil the pasta in salty water for 3 min. Drain it and rinse it with cold water. (With this pasta it’s very important not cook it too long, otherwise it will disintegrate).

Put in a salad bowl: the pasta, diced tomatoes, zucchini slices, crumbled cheese, finely chopped basil and vinaigrette. Mix well and…

Ready to eat.

Result: a delicious salad, easy to prepare, very complete as the lentils and cheese bring good proteins and moreover we can take it to work or to the beach!

 … and our small (or big) lovers of pasta will be enchanted with this dish 😉
