Teri’s Cucumber Pasta

Teri's Cucumber Pasta

Vegan MoFo 2011 - Vegan Month of FoodThis cool summer pasta salad could not be simpler. It is great for a potluck, where I was introduced to it by a colleague. Thanks for the recipe, Teri!

Any small pasta shape would work, but wagon wheels and rotini hold onto the sauce. Teri’s recipe calls for sugar, but I prefer to use agave nectar. Pasta has a high glycemic index already.
