Petite green lentils are sometimes labeled "le puy lentils." Other lentils also will work, but the cook time could change, so make sure they are tender before you drain and rinse them.

How to Make It

Step 1

To prepare vinaigrette, combine first 7 ingredients in a blender or food processor; process until well blended.

Step 2

To prepare salad, combine broth, lentils, and bay leaf in a saucepan; bring to a boil. Reduce heat, and simmer 25 minutes or until lentils are tender. Drain and rinse with cold water. Discard bay leaf.

Step 3

Cook pasta according to package directions, omitting the salt and fat. Drain and rinse with cold water.

Step 4

Combine lentils, pasta, zucchini, and remaining ingredients. Drizzle with vinaigrette; toss well. Store in an airtight container.
