  • 1 Package of Pasta Noodles – I recommend bowtie, penne, or rotini
  • 1 Can of White Cannellini Beans
  • 1 Avocado
  • 10 oz Package of Cherry Tomatoes
  • 1 Red Onion
  • 1 Cucumber


  • 4 Garlic Cloves
  • 1 Sprig of Fresh Basil
  • 1 Sprig of Fresh Rosemary
  • 1 Sprig of Fresh Dill
  • 1 Sprig of Fresh Thyme
  • 1 Lemon
  • 1/4 c. Dijon Mustard
  • 4 TBSP Olive Oil
  • Red Pepper, to taste
  • Salt and Pepper, to taste


  1. Follow the package instructions and cook the pasta until just cooked and slightly al dente. Drain and drizzle with olive oil to keep it from sticking while it cools.
  2. Wash and dry all produce.
  3. Roughly chop the avocado, red onion, and cucumber into bite-sized pieces.
  4. Halve the tomatoes and quarter the lemon and mince the garlic cloves.
  5. Finely chop the herbs and set aside.
  6. In a large serving bowl, combine the pasta, white beans, avocado, cherry tomatoes, red onion, and cucumber. Stir to mix.
  7. In a small bowl, whisk the garlic, herbs, juice from the lemon, Dijon mustard, and olive oil until thoroughly combined. Add in red pepper flakes, salt, and pepper to taste.
  8. Once thoroughly mixed, pour the dressing over the pasta salad mix and toss to coat.
  9. Add to the refrigerator and chill until ready to serve!
