Toodle Salad aka Pesto-style Tomato-Noodle Salad

Hello Vegan crowd,

It's probably been over a year since I posted on here, but finally I've got a recipe to post that's easy and really worth trying. I came up with it by accident (sort of ;) ). So here it is:

Toodle (Tomato-Noodle) Salad

 3 1/2 - 4 cups uncooked pasta of your choice (I do like to use spaghetti in this one)
1/2 cup tomatoes, de-seeded and finely diced
2 tbsp balsamic vinegar
1 scant tbsp olive oil
1/2 tsp prepared mustard
1/2 tsp rosemary or thyme
1/2 tsp basil
salt and pepper to taste


  1. Cook pasta according to package directions.

  2. While pasta is cooking combine all other ingredients.

  3. Drain the pasta, making sure it is still rather warm. Add to the tomato vinaigrette. Mix well and let stand for a short moment to settle. Serve.

Enjoy. :) Ness
