3 1/2

2
large red bell peppers, cut into 1-inch pieces (2 cups)
2
medium carrots (1 cup)
1/2
cup chopped fresh basil leaves
1/2
cup shredded Parmesan cheese (2 ounces)
1
cup light creamy Caesar dressing
2
tablespoons milk

  • 2 Meanwhile, mix bell peppers, carrots, basil and cheese in very large (4-quart) bowl. Mix dressing and milk in small bowl with wire whisk. Add dressing mixture, pasta and pea pods to bell pepper mixture; toss to coat.
Tips  

If fresh basil isn’t available, add 1 1/4 teaspoons dried basil leaves.

Look for low-fat or fat-free salad dressing. If you can’t find the Parmesan flavor with less fat, try creamy Italian.
