Recipe created exclusively for Community Grains by Chef Jonah Rhodehamel of Oliveto Cafe & Restaurant in Oakland, CA.
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, thin stream 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.
