need a low fat/calorie, dairy-free pasta recipe

zomigi | Feb 10, 2010 04:54 PM

I cooked up a bunch of whole wheat pasta shells for my toddler, which she turned her nose up at. So now I would like to make pasta salad out of it. Here are the problems:

-- My husband just started a weight loss study where he has to limit his calories and fat
-- I try not to eat dairy (but I'm not vegan; we both eat meat)

Does anyone have any great pasta recipes (preferably pasta salad since that's what I'm in the mood for) that meet these criteria? Obviously I need to add a lot of veggies or beans to the pasta to bring the calories per serving down, but I'm not sure what veggies to use in a pasta salad in February. (Not quite asparagus season, alas!)
