How 'bout trying this new "twist" with an old favorite? Our Summer Twist Salad is full of fresh veggies and tossed in a zingy dressing you'll want to put on everything. The twists are so much fun!

What You'll Need

  • 2 cups twist pasta or any medium pasta shape
  • 1 cup (4 ounces) sliced fresh mushrooms

Will let you know when I make it.

I am a diabetic, so I am always looking out for recipes that I can use low-carb pasta with. I made this recipe and WOW! It's great! Thanks for such a good recipe!
