Tomato & Mozzarella Pasta Salad Recipe
© Denzil Green

This combines all the great Italian flavours with the colours of the Italian flag: red, white and green. The flavours are amazing and at just 6 Weight Watchers PointsPlus® per 1 cup (150g) serving, it qualifies as "skinny food" despite the wonderful mixture of pasta, mozzarella, basil and olive oil.

Number of servings: Makes 8 x 1 cup (150g) servings

Estimated Prep Time: 30 minutes

Estimated Cooking Time: 10 minutes

Ingredients

Directions

Cook, drain and rinse pasta in cold water; set aside to cool.

Toss in a salad bowl:

    • the cherry tomatoes, rinsed & halved;
    • the green onions, rinsed & sliced;
    • the cucumber, cut into chunks about 1 cm (1/2 inch) thick;
    • mozzarella cheese, shredded

Then stir in the pasta.

Make the dressing from the olive oil, wine vinegar, basil, garlic and salt, pour it on the ingredients in the salad bowl, and toss.

Serve room temperature. If you are making this earlier in the day, chill until an hour before ready to serve.

Recipe notes

2 1/2 cups uncooked rotini = 225g / 8 oz

If you are making this out of season, you can get away with dried basil (use about 1 tablespoon.)

If you are using fresh basil, you can garnish the salad with a few leaves, chopped or whole.
