  • 1 lb penne pasta, cooked until firm to the bite
  • 2 cups grape tomatoes, halved
  • 1 large red onion, peeled and cut into 1/2 inch thick wedges
  • 1 lb asparagus, trimmed
  • 1 green bell pepper, cored, seeded and cut in half
  • 2 red bell peppers, cored, seeded and cut in half
  • 1 1/4 cups Paula Deen Vidalia Onion Peppercorn Dressing
  • 10 fresh basil leaves, stacked, rolled and cut into very thin strips


In a square baking dish toss vegetables with 1 Cup of the Paula Deen Vidalia Onion Peppercorn Dressing and place in the refrigerator for 1 hour.


While vegetables are marinating, cook pasta until firm to the bite and heat outdoor grill until medium hot.


Note: If pasta is holding long, drizzle with canola oil and toss to coat. This will keep pasta separated.


Working in batches, grill the peppers, asparagus and onion about 3 minutes per side until grill marks appear but vegetables are still firm.


Remove the vegetables from the grill and cool slightly until you can cut the peppers, asparagus and onions into large pieces.


In large bowl or on serving platter, toss together the cooked pasta, grilled vegetable pieces, and tomatoes and remaining 1/4 cup dressing. Toss in basil. Serve room temperature.
