2 tablespoons fresh chervil, chopped

Approximately 1 cup aïoli

For Aïoli:

1 egg yolk

1 tsp Dijon mustard

1/8 cup lemon juiced

2 cloves fresh garlic, minced

3/4 cup grape seed oil

1/4 cup olive oil

1 1/2 teaspoon salt


Cook fusilli in salted boiling water until just done, drain, and rinse with cold water.Transfer pasta to large bowl and add potatoes, peppers, herbs, frisée, and toss.

To make the aioli, in medium bowl combine the egg yolk, Dijon mustard, lemon juice, garlic and salt. Using a whisk slowly mix in the grape seed oil in a steady, thinstream to emulsify the mixture. Once the grape seed oil is gone, continue with the olive oil in the same manner.

Add aioli to pasta and mix well. Season the pasta salad with salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste.

We love this golden pasta tossed with wilted greens and dressed with a delicious extra virgin olive oil (try a fruity Californian like Bozzano A2) and shaved Parmigiano-Reggiano. Also try Community Grains Hard Amber Durum Pappardelle.
