i CAN have pasta salad after all!!!!!!! 4 points for 2 cups, thats just crazy talk!
so i don't know how this breaks down for you calorie counters, (on ww here), but it figures out to be 4 points for 2 cups!!!!! thats just crazy talk!
so here is what i did, (you can use whatever veggies you would like)
bell peppers (green, red and orange)
then i halved grape tomatos and put all my veggies in a big dish and
smothered them with "good seasons"" italian dressing.
******when making good seasons italian dressing fill the vinegar to the water line, then fill with water just a little past the oil line, and add your seasoning packet, DO NOT PUT THE OIL IN THE DECANTAR FOR THE DRESSING MIXTURE. just add your oil to the individual dish "as needed" works like a charm!********
then cook your whole wheat pasta to your liking, i like mine al dente, stop the cooking process by running under cool water. drain.
i measured one cup of wheat pasta 3 points, and one cup of veggies 1 point at most, tossed in a bowl, and topped with more good seasons italian dressing, (if you make it without the oil, it's free!). i'm a volume eater so if i can eat 2 cups of ANYTHING for 4 points, i'm thrilled!
NUMMY! and here i thought it was going to be a pasta salad free summer!
