Stacked Pasta Salad is a unique twist on a pasta casserole. It's a must-have for any vegetable lover!

What You'll Need:
  • 1 pound tri-colored pasta twists
  • 1 (16-ounce) container sour cream
  • 1 cup mayonnaise
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 4 scallions (green onions), thinly sliced
  • 1 tablespoon dried tarragon
  • 2 teaspoons salt
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons black pepper
  • 1 bunch (2 to 3 stalks) broccoli, cut into small florets and blanched (see Note)
  • 1 large head cauliflower, cut into small florets and blanched (see Note)
  • 1 large red bell pepper, diced
What To Do:
  1. Cook pasta according to package directions; drain, rinse, and drain again. Let cool.
     
  2. In a large bowl, combine sour cream, mayonnaise, milk, scallions, tarragon, salt, and black pepper; mix well. Reserve 1 cup sour cream mixture and add pasta to remaining sour cream mixture; toss until well coated.
     
  3. In a trifle dish or large glass serving bowl, layer half the pasta mixture, half the broccoli, half the cauliflower, and half the bell pepper. Repeat layers once more and drizzle with reserved sour cream mixture. Cover and chill for at least 2 hours before serving. Toss just before serving.

 

Notes
  • To blanch the broccoli and cauliflower florets, add each to boiling water for 1 minute then remove to a bowl of ice water to immediately stop them from cooking any further; drain.

What a pretty dish to set on your buffett

I really think this will be such a good salad.

I am pleased to have these "Veggie" salad recipes. I will try them. I eat vegetarian 99 percent of the time. Thank you again for these recipes.

How do I get the carb counts info for these recipes?

I often see requests for nutrition information in recipe comments. Some sites offer this, but if they don't, look up the ingredients at Nutritiondata.com. You will find everything you could possibly want to know about a food item. Then, just use a little calculator to figure out the recipe's total calorie or carb or fat (or dozens of other things) content and then divide it by your number of servings. I have the Nutrition Data site on my computer's favorites bar and have found it to be an indispensable aide in planning my diet...especially if you have health problems.

Caladium - you can also go to http://caloriecount.about.com/cc/recipe_analysis.php and enter all of the ingredients. You will then get a complete nutrition analysis of the recipe.

Sorry, my last comment should have been directed to ameliamouse71 0507732

2-Minute Slaw

It doesn't get more simple or classic than our 2-Minute Slaw. It's great for summertime BBQs on those lazy, sun-drenched days. So when the meat comes of the grill and you realize you forgot the slaw, no worries... it'll be done in a wink!
