Creamy pasta salad with wholemeal fusilli, layered on a bed of fresh mixed lettuce. Just with the addition of plain low fat yogurt and you have a light food served.
It took a bit of creativity, imagination and inspiration, but it finally arrived. Why not add an element of creaminess?
Here I am, with a summer dish that includes ingredients you can keep in the fridge for days. Prepare them before, then add the pasta at the last moment, maybe just before going to the beach or out for a picnic.
This creamy pasta salad is easy to make and you have a lot of freedom too. You can make it to your taste, tweak the ingredients as you like. Take your pick from different ready packed lettuce, and how much yogurt to add is up to you too.
Here I just gave you my idea for a summer creamy pasta salad, but now make it as you like to meet your taste.
As you can see the ingredients to make the recipe are not so many and easy to get. You can get fresh or buy ready washed and packed lettuce.
Start by giving a stronger taste to the yogurt like adding a pinch of salt and pepper up to your taste.
In a pasta pot you can add the lettuce and make some Italian seasoning with extra-virgin olive oil and a squeeze of lemon.
After you have drained the pasta you can add the seasoned yogurt to the pasta pot. Then with a wooden spatula mix it.
Well this is the final dish and I think it's very inviting as well.
