Using the “Almost Homemade” approach, we modified a Chipotle Ranch Pasta salad.

To the base package instructions and ingredients the following items were added:

  • A few matchstick carrots, which remained in the refrigerator vegetable drawer – added to the water while cold and before boiling the pasta and which remained in the pot while the pasta is cooked to tenderize.
  • some leftover black beans with crystal quickly rinsed in a colander (a can of rinsed black beans could have been used instead)  – added with other ingredients once the pasta was strained.
  • some additional diced green peppers from the garden – added with other ingredients once the pasta was strained.
  • Substituted some homemade creamy yogurt for the mayonnaise in the ingredients list.
