Instructions

  1. Bring 5 quarts of water to boil. Add pasta and cook for 7 to 9 minutes, until al dente. Rinse and set aside in a large bowl.
  2. In another large pot, bring 4 quarts of water to a boil. Add kale, peas and asparagus. Simmer until vegetables are crisp-tender, about 6 to 8 minutes. Remove from heat and rinse in cold water. Drain well. Add vegetables to pasta.
  3. Whisk together all remaining ingredients to make dressing. Pour over pasta. Stir, and chill for at least 2 hours.
