Pasta Verde

Ingredients

  • 1 pound gemelli, or other short pasta

For the Vinaigrette

  • 2 tablespoons grainy mustard
  • 2 tablespoons white-wine or sherry vinegar
  • 1/4 cup plus 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
  • Coarse salt and freshly ground pepper

For the Add-Ins

  • 1 sweet onion, halved lengthwise, then cut crosswise 1/4 inch thick
  • 2 small zucchinis, halved lengthwise, then cut crosswise 1/4 inch thick
  • 8 ounces snap peas, tough strings removed
  • 3 ounces baby spinach, (or 1 bunch regular spinach, stems trimmed and leaves coarsely chopped)
