This is a light version of traditional shrimp salad (without mayo) and is filling enough to be served as an entree.

  • 4 ounces whole-wheat bow tie or other pasta
  • 2 teaspoons olive oil

Cook pasta according to directions. When the pasta is done, scoop out 1 cup of the pasta water and reserve. Drain and rinse pasta.
