Creamy Seafood Pasta Salad Recipe

Step 1

Cook pasta in boiling water according to package instructions or until firm to the bite. Rinse with cold water. Drain and place in serving bowl.

Step 2

In medium nonstick skillet sprayed with vegetable spray, saute seafood just untill cooked, approximately 3 minutes. Set aside.

Step 3

Add red and green peppers, onions, carrots and green onions to pasta. Add seafood.

Step 4

Make the dressing: In small bowl combine yogurt, mayonnaise, dill, lemon juice, garlic and mustard. Pour over pasta. Toss and chill

TIPS: firm fish filets can be used with or instead of mxed seafood. Be careful not to over cool. Grilled fish instead of sauteed makes an excellent variation.

MAKE AHEAD: Pasta salad and dressing can be prepared early in day. Do not toss untill ready to serve.
