Gluten Free Spaghetti Vegetable Salad

                 

Pasta salad is an easy meal when you really don't have time to cook. I've been on a kick lately using alot of celery, cabbage, avocado, and cherry tomatoes over rice, pasta, and in just salads.

For this very simple meal,   I opened a bag of gluten free spaghetti from Trader Joe's, cooked it up in about 20 minutes, drained it and served it mixed with a chopped tomato, chopped celery, chopped red cabbage,  and fresh basil .

 I used Italian dressing,  a jar of marinated artichokes, and some cumin ...

It came out really tasty and was satisfying, healthy, and loaded with fiber. In addition, it is vegan. Sometimes you just need something simple..  What have you been cooking??

3/4 package of gluten free spaghetti ( from Trader Joe's)
1 package of cherry tomatoes, cut in half
1 cup fresh basil, chopped
1/2 of marinated artichokes in oil  ( from a jar)
1/2 cup red cabbage, chopped
1 cup of chopped celery
1 cup cooked chick peas
1 -2 teaspoons of ground cumin
1/2 cup Italian dressing or ( juice of a fresh lemon, olive oil, and salt and pepper)

Directions

Cook pasta, wash and drain
prepare the remainder of ingredients and toss with cooked pasta and salad dressing.
Eat as a quick meal.
