I found a healthy and delicious meal for the summer that will hopefully satisfy your appetite.

I hope you enjoy!

Ingredients:

  • 2 cups whole-wheat rotini (6 ounces)
  • 1/3 cup reduced-fat mayonnaise
  • 1/3 cup low-fat plain yogurt
  • 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon red-wine vinegar or lemon juice
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt, or to taste
  • Freshly ground pepper to taste
  • 1 cup cherry or grape tomatoes, halved
  • 1 cup diced yellow or red bell pepper (1 small)
  • 1 cup grated carrots (2-4 carrots)
  • 1/2 cup chopped scallions (4 scallions)
  • 1/2 cup chopped pitted Kalamata olives
  • 1/3 cup slivered fresh basil

Directions                            

Bring a large pot of lightly salted water to a boil. Cook pasta, stirring occasionally, until just tender, 8 to 10 minutes, or according to package directions. Drain and refresh under cold running water.

Whisk mayonnaise, yogurt, oil, vinegar (or lemon juice), garlic, salt and pepper in a large bowl until smooth. Add the pasta and toss to coat. Add tomatoes, bell pepper, carrots, scallions, olives and basil; toss to coat well.
