This pasta salad is a healthy twist on the usually salad with refined carbs and high-fat creamy dressing.

INGREDIENTS

SERVES 25

  • 28 oz dry whole-wheat pasta
  • 2 cups Grape Tomatoes
  • 12 oz Artichoke Hearts
  • 1 zucchini(s)
  • 1 red bell pepper
  • 1/4 medium onion Vidalia
  • 8 oz Cheese, Medium Cheddar
  • 1/3 cup Parmesan cheese
  • 12 oz Champagne Vinaigrette
  • 3 tbsp Dijon Mustard
  • 1/3 cup Basil Pesto

DIRECTIONS

1 Cook pasta according to package directions. Drain and rinse with cold water.
2 While pasta cooks, prepare vegetables and cheddar cheese then toss together in a very large bowl or serving container. (Note the yield so plan accordingly.)
3 Once pasta has cooled, add pasta to bowl with other ingredients. Toss together.
4 Whisk together dressing and Dijon mustard. Using a large spoon (or your hands), toss ingredients together.
5 Refrigerate at least one hour (or overnight). Stir in basil before serving.
6 *Note that I used T. Marzetti Champagne Binaigrette but Ghirard's is also a favorite. My mom swears by Marie's Creamy Italian as a delicious option.
