Ribbons of Beemster Farmers’ Choice accent this antipasto pasta salad. Perfect as a main or a side.
Cook pasta in boiling salted water according to package directions. Drain and run under cool water to stop cooking.
In a large bowl, toss all of the vegetables with olive oil, salt, and pepper.
Place vegetables on a grill (or grill pan) on medium-high heat. Cook until vegetables are tender, 8–10 min., turning occasionally for even cooking.
Remove vegetables from the grill, let cool slightly, and cut into bite-sized pieces. Add vegetables to a large bowl with pasta and toss with Italian dressing.
Using a vegetable peeler, shred the Beemster into ribbons over the pasta salad.
