Tomato Pasta Salad

READY IN: 40mins
Recipe by Tebo3759

The only cooking done here is the pasta. Pasta salads are usually loaded with fat. This is a "heart healthy" low cal pasta salad. This is a good summer pasta salad for a barbeque or a picnic.

I picked this recipe for Recipe Roulette(in Everything Else), and I'm so glad I tried it. I served it to some finicky eaters who said they didn't like most pasta salads. But! They loved this salad! I used a little less tomato puree than called for(I made my own by just pureeing some roma tomatoes), and milk instead of buttermilk. I also added olives, some minced red onion, and minced cubanelle peppers. Thanks for a nice change of pace!
