The original recipe had over 500 cals per serving. By my estimate a big bowl of my version has 286 calories.
Slimmed-Down Pepperoni Pasta Salad
2 cups rotini pasta, uncooked
1 cup cucumber, chopped
1 cup part-skim mozzarella, cubed
1 medium tomato, chopped
2 tablespoons finely diced red onion
5 small turkey pepperoni sticks, chopped. (I use Freybe's I think it ends up to be around a cup of pepperoni.)
1/2 cup light zesty Italian dressing.
- Cook pasta until just a teensy bit underdone. Rinse well with cold water and set aside.
- Combine remaining ingredients and cooled pasta in a large bowl. Refrigerate for at least two hours.
- Stir and serve.
