Categories     Pasta Salads

Time 55m

Number Of Ingredients 10

Ingredients:

  • 6 oz whole wheat pasta
  • 10 oz cauliflower, raw
  • 10 oz broccoli, raw
  • 10 oz carrots, raw, peeled & sliced into coins
  • 3 medium jalapeno peppers, de-veined, de-seeded, sliced
  • 2 medium tomatoes, chopped
  • 3 oz olives, sliced
  • 7 oz cheddar cheese, low fat, cubed
  • 3 Tbsp parmesan cheese, grated
  • 8 oz caesar italian dressing, (kraft fat free)

Steps:

  • 1. Boil pasta until el dente'. Rinse in cold water and place in a large salad bowl.
  • 2. Clean and separate broccoli and cauliflower flowerettes. Boil a pot of water - turn off and place vegetables in hot water to BLANCH. (approx. 3 min). They should brighten in color, but still be crisp. Repeat with carrots.
  • 3. Add blanched vegetables to bowl of pasta.
  • 4. Add chopped tomato, sliced jalapenos and olives to pasta bowl. (You may use black or green olives). I prefer small green olives stuffed with pimentos. Mix thoroughly.
  • 5. Cut cheddar cheese into small cubes and add along with 3 T. of fresh parmesan. Add the Caesar Italian salad dressing and blend into pasta and vegetable mixture thoroughly. I have also used fat free Zesta Italian dressing before. If you like a creamier salad you could also add 1/2 cup of mayonnaise, but remember the POINTS value will change if you do. Refrigerate overnight covered.
  • 6. If you want your salad hotter/spicier, leave seeds and veins in jalapenos.

  • Cook pasta according to box directions, drain and let cool (do not overcook pasta, or salad will be mushy). Refrigerate.
  • When all is chilled mix veggies in with pasta, and add salad dressing, and salt and pepper to taste. Mix all well.
  • *Save some of the salad dressing to pour on just before serving. When it's time to serve you can add more salad dressing, if you like more. The pasta has a tendency to soak up salad dressing as it marinates, so I save some to add right at serving time.
