Need a dish to pass for a potluck? Here's a pasta salad tossed with a creamy dressing that's ready in less than 30 minutes.
Updated Aug 2, 2010

Ingredients

  • 3 1/2 cups uncooked bow-tie (farfalle) pasta (9 oz)
  • 2 cups fresh snow pea pods (12 oz), strings removed
  • 2 large red bell peppers, cut into 1-inch pieces (2 cups)
  • 2 medium carrots, sliced (1 cup)
  • 1/2 cup chopped fresh basil leaves
  • 1/2 cup shredded Parmesan cheese (2 oz)
  • 1 cup creamy Parmesan dressing
  • 2 tablespoons milk

Steps

  • 1
    Cook and drain pasta as directed on package, adding pea pods for last minute of cooking. Rinse with cold water; drain.
  • 2
    In very large (4-quart) bowl, mix bell peppers, carrots, basil and cheese. In small bowl, mix dressing and milk with wire whisk. Add dressing mixture, pasta and pea pods to bell pepper mixture; toss to coat.

Tips from the Betty Crocker Kitchens

  • tip 1
    Any medium-sized pasta shape can be substituted for the bow-tie pasta.
  • tip 2
    Look for low-fat or fat-free salad dressing. If you can't find the Parmesan flavor with less fat, look for low-fat creamy Italian.
