Roasted Cherry Tomato Pasta Salad With Caramelized Onion

Print

This organic pasta salad with roasted cherry tomatoes and caramelized onion dressing is delicious! The sweetness of the roasted tomatoes and sweet potato combined with the dressing, feta and crunchy walnuts is the best combination.

I don’t usually eat much pasta and if I do it will be gluten free, so why did I decide to try this one?

  • It’s organic
  • Made with the ancient grain Senatore Cappelli
  • Slow dried at a low temperature to retain nutrition
  • It cooks in 5-7 minutes
  • It tastes really good!

Further Food Commentary:

This pasta salad is the perfect side dish for a summer BBQ! Both the roasted sweet potatoes and cherry tomatoes offer big amounts of Vitamin A (in the form of beta-carotene) and Vitamin C. The olive oil in the caramelized onion dressing has anti-inflammatory benefits, while the apple cider vinegar can aid in lowering blood sugar. Additionally, the ancient-grain penne, paired with the sweet potatoes and walnuts, make for a seriously filling and nutritious dish! Try subbing out the pasta for zoodles or spaghetti squash for a low carb, gluten-free, or paleo option.
