  • 8 oz gluten free rotini noodles (my favorite is Banza) 
  • 1/2 pint cherry tomatoes, diced in half
  • 1/2 medium red onion, diced
  • 1/2 large English cucumber, sliced into half moons
  • 1/2 cup pepperoncinis, diced 

Italian Dressing

  • 1/3 cup olive oil 
  • 1/4 cup red wine vinegar 
  • 1-2 tsp Italian seasoning 
  • salt and black pepper to taste


  1. Begin by boiling the noodles and cooking them according to box instructions. When they are done cooking, drain them and set them aside.

  2. In a large bowl that you will serve the pasta salad in, add in the dressing ingredients. Use a whisk to mix them together. Taste and adjust seasoning if needed - if you like more of an Italian flavor, add 2 tsp of seasoning. Be sure to add salt and pepper as well!

  3. Next, slice and dice and chop all of the veggies!

  4. Add the pasta to the bowl directly with the dressing as well as the chopped veggies. Mix together until everything is fully combined!

  5. Taste and adjust seasoning if needed. If you like more of a "zip", add some more red wine vinegar or a pinch of salt.

  6. Place in the fridge for at least 2 hours prior to serving. Enjoy!
