I love a good pasta salad.  I love when the pasta salad is a meal in itself.  Here is one that I love to make all the time and it is so easy and healthy too.


1 pound whole grain macaroni or rotelli pasta, cooked to al dente and tossed in 3 tablespoons of olive oil.

Mix with the following:

1/2 cup each chopped celery, red and green sweet peppers.
1 jalapeno diced
1 pint cherry/grape tomatoes sliced in half
1 red onion, diced
1 cup corn kernels, fresh from the cob or canned is fine
1 13 ounce can black beans, drained and rinsed so the black doesn't discolor the salad
1 1/2  cups frozen small peas
2 cups plain yogurt
1 tablespoon sugar or splenda
1/2 cup white wine vinegar
