Asian Linguine Salad Recipe

With loads of vegetables and a delicious lemon-sesame oil dressing, this low-fat pasta toss offers guilt-free enjoyment. “The original recipe called for raw vegetables, but we think they taste so great stir fried this way,” explains Pat Hilmer of Oshkosh, Wisconsin.
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 30 min. + chilling YIELD:8 servings

Ingredients

  • 8 ounces uncooked linguine
  • 1/3 cup reduced-sodium soy sauce
