This summer pasta salad recipe works best with durum wheat pasta. Whole wheat or spelt pasta is chewier and heavier.
Gluten Free pastas are prone to disintegrating, but will work if you undercook (should be chewy), mix in last, and handle very gently. Tinkyada brand brown rice pasta is one we've found that works well.
Note: Double the amount of beans to cook extra, to freeze for future recipes. Using a pressure cooker greatly reduces cooking time, but don't omit the soaking!
Cook black beans & garbanzo beans separately! More bean cooking tips
