Then, add the scallions, diced pepper, and tomatoes, tossing gently to combine. Set aside to cool.
  2. While the pasta is cooling, whisk together the Vegenaise, sour cream, lemon juice, and salt. Pour the mixture over the pasta and mix well to incorporate the ingredients. Stir in the dill and salt to taste.
  3. Cover with clear wrap and chill for 4-6 hours to let the flavors marinate. Serve chilled.
