Curried Pasta Salad

I’ve been making this curried pasta salad since I was in my pasta/noodle eating phase as a teenager. I’ve never really gotten over my love of pasta, but every now and then I mix it up by trying a different type of pasta. This one I make with a buckwheat pasta which makes it gluten free. However, I really love it with elbow shaped pasta and even macaroni.

I used a buckwheat pasta, which makes the recipe gluten-free. I bought the pasta from the health food store. However, any small pasta shape will work for this recipe.
