It’s beautiful outside! These days, all we want to do is spend time outdoors! This weekend, I planned our first picnic, and I felt like preparing a good pasta salad for lunch. It’s a healthy and balanced recipe, perfect for a picnic, lunch, mountain hike, or the beach (soon)!
250 g whole wheat rotini pasta, dry
45 ml (3 tablespoons) light mayonnaise
45 ml (3 tablespoons) plain Greek yogurt 0%

200 g (3/4 cup) green pepper, diced
