Follow cooking directions on pasta package, allowing pasta to remain slightly undercooked. This will help keep the pasta from falling apart in the salad. Drain and rinse with cold water until pasta is completely cool.
While the pasta is cooling, mix all the Basic Vinaigrette ingredients together in a bowl until combined.
Place cooled pasta into a large bowl and add the vegetables and herbs. Gently toss. Drizzle Basic Vinaigrette over the pasta salad and gently toss again. Cover and refrigerate until ready to serve.
If meal prepping, transfer the salad to airtight containers and store in refrigerator until ready to use.
Use the pasta of your choice: bowtie, fusilli, shells, etc.
Arugula has a strong, peppery flavor. You can swap with kale or spinach.
Cannellini beans can be swapped with the legume of your choice.
I love using basil, oregano and chives yet you can any fresh herbs.
