Fire-and-Ice Pasta Salad
Healthy Exchanges Cookbook p.93

I created this salad when I had leftover rotini pasta and cucumbers sitting around from other dishes I was testing. Am I ever glad I did! It has quickly become a "new family favorite." Serves 4 (l cup)

2 cups cooked rotini pasta, linsed and drained
1 cup chopped fresh tomatoes
1 cup chopped cucumbers
1 1/3 cup (1 1/2 ounces) Kraft shredded reduced-fat mozzarella cheese
1/4 cup Kraft fat-free Ranch dressing
1 teaspoon Dijon mustard
1 tablespoon fresh parsley or 1 teaspoon dried parsley flakes

In a medium bowl, combine rotini pasta, tomatoes, cucumbers, and cheese. Add Ranch dressing, mustard, and parsley. Mix gently to combine. Cover and refrigerate until ready to serve.

Hint: 1 1/2 cups uncooked rotini pasta usually make about 2 cups

Each serving equals:
