This flavorful, Italian-style recipe uses red lentil rotini. That way you can enjoy the pasta salad while boosting legume intake.



  • 8 oz Organic Red Lentil Rotini
  • 1/4 cup extra-virgin olive oil
  • 4 cups broccoli florets
  • 2/3 cup Red Onion
  • 2 red bell pepper
  • 3 oz Natural Prosciutto
  • 1/4 cup Pecorino Romano
  • 1/2 cup Basil, Fresh
  • 1/3 cup Red Wine Vinegar
  • 1/4 tsp sea salt


1 Cook the rotini (such as Tolerant Red Lentil Rotini) per package directions. (Alternatively, use a whole grain pasta shape of choice.) Drain; do not rinse; and toss while still hot with olive oil, broccoli, and onion in a large bowl. Chill.
2 Stir bell peppers, prosciutto, cheese, basil, vinegar and salt into the cool pasta, and serve.
3 (NOTE: For vegetarians, swap prosciutto and cheese for finely chopped sun-dried tomatoes and artichoke hearts. If making in advance, stir in additional red wine vinegar just before serving.)
