Pasta, Pesto and Haloumi

The mercury is slowly rising towards a warmer weather... Its time to clean the wardrobe and put away winter clothing... and out 'Summer Wear'! Yay.... but... before I could put on my Summer Clothes... I need to lose few kg... as the result of 'Winter Comford Food'...

I have been having my brisk walking ... not everyday but at least 3 times a week... and last weekend ~ Mr H and I were so busy in our garden... pruning, weeding, planting (heirloom tomatoes, sweet basil, purple basil, meyer lemon) Hope that counts towards reducing my kgs :)...At the moment, the bathroom scale is not my 'BFF' yet ..

And this WeightWatcher Salad will help me in achieving my goals...  ;) 
  • 300g pasta shapes
  • 2 tablespoon traditional basil pesto (Leggo)
  • 2 tablespoon lite sour cream
  • 1 small capsicum - sliced thinly
  • 100g snowpeas sprout - cut into 3 parts
  • salt and pepper
  • a packet of Cypress haloumi cheese - thinly sliced 
Spray oil in a non stick frying pan, pan fry the haloumi cheese until golden both side. Put aside on a plate.
Cook pasta as per packet instruction. Transfer to a salad bowl, and mix in sour cream and pesto. Salt and pepper to taste. Gently mix in the vegetables. Serve


  1. Have not tried Haloumi cheese before though have been wanting to.
