Garbanzo, Zucchini, Feta and Pasta Salad – Gluten-Free
Want a satisfying, filling, tasty lunch? Try this pasta salad with garbanzos, zucchini, tomato and feta. To my surprise, my husband ate a whole dishful, including the GF pasta — and the zucchini. This time I used Mrs. Leeper’s 100% Organic Corn Rotelli. The flavor was very good and the texture was pretty good, too, although the noodles did tend to break apart lengthwise some.
There’s a fine line between the lower carb dishes that I like and the particular flavor that my gluten-eating hubby wants, so I’ll definitely remember this combination. Next time, though, I might test it with a higher-fiber pasta, possibly multi-colored, to see how he likes that. However, with the green zucchini, red tomato and yellow pasta, this dish has plenty of color.
Al said at first that it had too much zucchini, but he did eat his whole serving.
