Vegan Greek-Style Pasta & Bean Salad
with Grape Tomatoes, Cucumber & Parsley
This bright, filling vegan pasta salad is delicious anytime, but is an especially great dinner idea when you need a make-ahead option or something picnic or potluck-friendly. Leftovers make a fantastic lunch, too! This pasta salad combines penne with tangy marinated white beans, fresh crisp cukes, and bell pepper tossed in a creamy, Greek-inspired vinaigrette loaded with garlic and oregano. It’s a simple yet satisfying 25-minute meal you’ll want to put in your rotation.
