A vegetarian pasta salad with chickpeas is ideal for Meatless Monday or any day that you want to try something different. Inspired by the new movie The Hundred-Foot Journey, our friends at DreamWorks shared with us this delicious and easy recipe. The ingredients call for chaat masala, which you can get at the ethnic spices section at grocery stores or online. It does add a complex and unique flavor to the dish, but you can certainly try making this salad without it. If you are sensitive to gluten, just substitute the spiral noodles for any gluten-free pasta. Just click and print this yummy pasta salad recipe and let me know if you liked it as much as I did.
