Tasty, Healthy Pasta Salad with Chicken

-1 package whole wheat Buitoni tortellini
-1 6 oz container of plain 0% fat Chobani Greek Yogurt
-1/4 C Pesto
-1/2 C shredded chicken
-1/2 tomato, diced
-2 black and 1 green olive, sliced (seriously, you slice them thin and only use a few its all you need)
-1/2 C crumbled feta
-1/4 C fresh shredded parmesan
-1 TB basil
-1/2 tsp crushed rosemary
-1 TB garlic cheese topper
-Salt and pepper to taste

Cook the pasta according to package directions, drain, and let cool for a few minutes. 

Mix the remaining ingredients together and add salt and pepper to taste.  Refrigerate overnight and enjoy.

The great thing about it is the vast majority of the dressing is Greek yogurt, and by adding in the extra herbs you get a lot of flavor without needing to increase the pesto AND a lot of protein.  I do love sneaky protein.  I also used fat free feta from Trader Joe's, it is delicious!

The pasta is honestly so tasty that no one would ever know it is whole wheat. Doubly sneaky.

Happy crafting! Pin It Now!
