    Pesto pasta salad!

    I've been craving pasta salad for lunch lately and I found this on pinterest and it's very yummy! Looking forward to eating it for lunch this week

    Pesto Pasta Salad – Eat Your Veggies! | Fat Girl Trapped in a Skinny Body


    1 1/2 lbs shell pasta (or any other noodle you like)
    1 cup prepared pesto (I used an 8 ounce jar of Classico)
    1 package (10 ounces) frozen chopped spinach, thawed and squeezed from all the excess water
    3 tbsp lemon juice
    1/2 cup light mayo
    1/2 cup plain yogurt (I used whole milk, but any fat content will work)
    1 package (16 ounces) frozen peas (thawed, rinsed and drained)
    1/2 cup fresh grated parmesan
    1/2 tsp salt
    1/2 tsp pepper
    *Salt and pepper to your taste preferences

    Cook the noodles according to the package instructions. Rinse with cold water, drain and cool to room temperature.

    In the bowl mix the spinach, pesto, lemon juice, mayo, yogurt, salt and pepper. Add the pesto mixture to the cooled pasta and then add the Parmesan and peas. *Mix well, season to taste, and serve at room temperature.

    Can be made 3 days ahead of time. *In fact, make it at least 1 day ahead of time so the ‘sauce’ really absorbs into the noodles. *This makes it taste even better!
