Notes

  • Note: this recipe calls for Vermicelli pasta--not vermicelli rice noodles. You can use any pasta you choose: spaghetti, angel hair, or a tubular pasta (macaroni, rigatoni, etc.)
  • This recipe works best if you make the pasta and and let it sit overnight; the next day, add the remaining ingredients, cover and store overnight-again.
  • If you don't have two days, just make sure the pasta (combined with the seasoned salt, lemon juice and olive oil) is refrigerated overnight. The next morning, add the other ingredients, cover and let sit in fridge until ready to serve.
