Ingredients
  • 1 lb fat free ground turkey (weighed raw)
  • 2.5 Tbsp taco seasoning
  • 2 cups of cooked rotini style pasta (I weighed pasta uncooked and picture below for my nutritional numbers, the 2 cups uncooked was 17SP)
  • 1 cup diced peppers (I used green & yellow)
  • ½ cup diced red onion
  • 1 cup grape tomatoes (cut in half)
  • 2 cups shredded iceberg lettuce
  • 1 cup reduced fat shredded cheese (I used a 3 cheese blend)
  • ½ cup calorie wise catalina dressing (or french dressing)
  • 1 tsp taco seasoning
  • 4 taco shells, crushed
Instructions
  1. Cook and drain your pasta and rinse under cold water.
  2. Brown your ground turkey and stir in the 2.5 Tbsp taco seasoning, drain and add to a bowl
  3. Add your pasta, peppers, onion, tomatoes, lettuce, cheese, 1 tsp taco seasoning and dressing, stir well. Once you are ready to serve stir in your crushed taco shells *these are best added only when ready to serve as they will go soggy after a while.
  4. Store salad in the fridge, makes 12- 1 cup servings
