Coming In:
15 Min

This is our idea of great picnic basket food. In fact, anytime you want that open, airy, "alfresco" feeling - this'll do it.

What You'll Need:
  • 1/2 cup vegetable oil
  • 1/4 cup red wine vinegar
  • 2 tablespoons grated Parmesan cheese
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 teaspoon Dijon-style mustard
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons salt
  • 1 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper
  • 3 cups mostaccioli or other similar pasta shape, like penne
  • 1 pound cooked roast beef, cut into julienne strips
  • 1 (9-ounce) package frozen green beans, thawed
  • 2 small tomatoes, chopped
  • 1/4 cup chopped scallion
What To Do:
  1. In a small bowl, combine the oil, vinegar, Parmesan cheese, garlic, mustard, salt, oregano, and black pepper; mix well.
  2. In a large pot of boiling salted water, cook the pasta to desired doneness; drain.
  3. In a large bowl, combine the pasta, roast beef, green beans, tomatoes, and scallion. Pour the dressing over the pasta mixture; toss to coat. Chill until ready to serve.

Thanks for your comment. Don't forget to share!

What I want to know is what is mostaccioli? I know what penne is, but not mostaccioli.

Good question! The difference between Mostaccioli and Penne is that th Mostaccioli has a smooth surface and Penne has ridges. Otherwise, the shape is the same. So, if you can not find Mostacciolo, Penne will substitute just fine. Enjoy!

In this recipe it calls for frozen green beans thawed. Does that mean not to cook them?

Frozen green beans are already cooked. So, all you need to do is thaw them since this salad is served chilled. Enjoy!
