Peas and Carrots aren't so scary! Halloween Pasta

When I was a kid, cooked peas and carrots were the veggie combo that scared me to death.
I couldn't stand them and thought they were not only mushy and tasteless but torture to eat.
As an ode to my childhood fears, I
 made a Spooky Pasta Salad fit for Halloween night.

This is what I've learned about peas, 
I like them fresh and crisp...
(You'll need 2 cups)

This is what I've learned about carrots, 
I like them raw and spiralized...
(you'll need 2 large fresh ones)

This doesn't look so frightening does it?

To keep that Halloween Spirit, mix them both with a fun black pasta
(this is one bag of  Trader Joe's Black Bean Rotini, 
cooked according to package instructions and cooled)...

Then toss with my favorite dressing of:
3 Tablespoons White Wine Vinegar
6 Tablespoons Light (in color) Olive Oil
1 finely diced shallot
1 tsp dijon mustard

I think my childhood nightmare has turned into a dream!
