Preparation

Bring a large stock pot of salted water to a boil over medium heat and cook pasta according to package directions. Make sure to cook to al dente, strain, and rinse under cold water.

When ready to cook, start the Traeger according to grill instructions. Set temperature to Smoke setting (set to Super Smoke if using a WiFIRE-enabled grill) and preheat, lid closed for 10-15 minutes.

Spread cooked pasta out on a sheet tray and place sheet tray directly on the grill grate. Smoke for 20 minutes, remove from heat, and transfer directly to the refrigerator to cool.

While the pasta is cooling mix the dressing. Place all ingredients in a medium bowl and whisk to combine.

When pasta is cool combine chopped veggies, smoked pasta and dressing in a large bowl.

Cover with plastic wrap and place in the fridge for 20 minutes before serving. Enjoy!
