So here is a really fantastic pasta salad recipe. To add a twist … we made it GREEK!
While creating this recipe and adding up the Weight Watchers point values in my head, I was getting a little bit worried that the points would be higher than I wanted. HOWEVER, to my shock and amazement, this delicious pasta salad is only 2.5 points (original points system) for a cup. Yes, that is right … a full serving cup for only 2.5 points.
I hope you try this recipe and enjoy this healthy, low-calorie pasta salad as much as my hubby and I did. Let me know what you think of this recipe or how you tweaked it in the comments below. Happy eats!
16 ounces / 450 grams rotini (uncooked)
3/4 English cucumber (diced)
2-1/2 cups grape tomatoes (halved)
1 red bell pepper (diced)
1/2 cup black pitted olives (sliced)
1/2 cup feta cheese (cubed)
1/2 cup red onion (diced)
3/4 cup light Greek vinaigrette dressing
- Cook the pasta el dente following the cooking instructions on the package.
- Remove from heat immediately, drain, and rinse the pasta under cold water to stop the pasta from cooking some more.
- Combine all ingredients in a large metal mixing bowl and toss.
- Transfer to a round Pyrex dish and refrigerate at least 2 hours before serving.

A good mixing bowl is so convenient for many big batch recipes in my blog, such as pasta salads. When you use a large mixing bowl, you do not have to be too careful about your ingredients falling out of the bowl as you try to get a nice and even mix of all your ingredients.
