Rotini Guacamole Pasta Salad from Catelli


Pasta is one of my weaknesses. I love it. Especially a cold pasta salad. But I often feel maybe it is not the best choice, you know all the carbs. Well there is no reason to feel guilty with Catelli Healthy Harvest.

Catelli® Healthy Harvest® provides 75% of your daily recommended whole grain servings and is a very high source of fibre. So eating this pasta is good for you! There are so many great recipes you can create with pasta. The possibilities are endless. Below is one I am looking forward to making myself.
