Directions

  1. Bring a large pot of lightly salted water to a boil. Add the pasta, and cook for 8 to 10 minutes, until tender. Drain and cool, then transfer to a large bowl.
  2. In a blender or large food processor, combine the vinegar, sugar, mustard, garlic powder, salt, pepper, parsley, onion and cucumber. Puree until it forms a smooth sauce, about 3 minutes.
  3. Pour over the pasta, and stir to coat evenly. Cover, and refrigerate for 3 days before serving. Stir once a day.

I made this to take on a family picnic. Everyone loved it! I especially enjoyed that the dish could be made days before I needed it. Thanks for a great recipe.

This is a great tasting pasta salad. I used colored rotini instead. I think next time I make it I will add some diced up cucumber carrots and maybe some sweet corn to make it a little more than just pasta.

You don't have to use mostaccioli in paticular, a simple penne past works. I was so excited to make this recipe and was really disappointed. This is WAY TOO sweet for me. I thought maybe the vinegar would cancel out some of the sugar but no way. Sweet pasta is just really strange.
