I don’t have a lot of experience with asparagus or squash. In fact I’ve exhausted a lot of energy avoiding these two vegetables quite successfully for the last 20ish years. Last week though for some reason I brought them both home from the grocery store and came up with this pasta salad. I hope you try it – I really like it, and the husband actually ate it.

Look at the nutritional information for Asparagus! It’s crazy good for you!



  1. Grill Asparagus and squash on indoor grill until soft. Set aside to cool.

  1. Slice tomatoes, olives, pepperoni & cheese into bite size pieces.

  1. In a large bowl combine pasta (cooked), veggies and fat free Italian dressing.
  2. Serve or cool in refrigerator.

Yield: 8cups
WWP: 3 (1/2c portion)

  1. looks great….SUPER GREAT! Next time you make it, try using a whole grain instead of pasta. Some of my favorite hardy grains are Spelt, Barley or a wild rice. Quinoa is great too.

    Remember to soak your grains over night for optimum digestion.
