 While in the kitchen trying to come up with an quick and easy recipe
 that I cou ld have at work at lunch and would keep for a week in the
 frig., this is what I came up with:
 Three Bean Pasta Salad
 1 can kidney beans
 1 can garbonzo beans
 1 can black beans
 1/2 package of rainbow pasta
 1 bunch of green onions or red onion
 1/2 green or red pepper
 brocolli florets (whatever about you desire)
 2 carrots
 1/2 bunch raddishes
 Drain and rinse the beans in a collander and dump in a bowl. Boil the
 pasta. When done drain water and rinse with cold water. Add to bowl
 with beans. Chop the veggies and also add to bowl. I then sprinkle
 with Spice Islands seasoning (Mrs. Dash or any other type of salt
 substitute would work). But this part is optional. I then pour over
 this mixture about 1/2 or less bottle of Trader Joe's Fatfree No Oil
 Dill and Garlic Dressing. Place the bowl in the Frig. for at lea st an
 hour before serving.
 Other variations on the veggies are: peas, string beans, caulaflower,
 celery, cucumbers etc. Probably a variety of combinations are
 Each week when I make this the selection a veggies changes, depending
 on what I have in the frig.
 I think this would also work for a potluck at the Office or at other
 functions when your at a loss on what to take. Also as a backup in
 case the choices at the potluck may be limited in terms of fatfree
 and vegetarian.
