12 ounces medium shell pasta
1 pound mixed seafood (scallops, squid shrimp -- and/or firm white fish fillets) cut into 2 inch piece
1 1/2 cups diced sweet red peppers
1 cup diced sweet green peppers
3/4 cup diced red onions
3/4 cup thinly sliced carrots
1/2 cup chopped green onions
1 cup 2% yogurt
1/3 cup light mayonnaise
1/2 cup chopped fresh dill or
1 1/2 tablespoons dried
2 tablespoons lemon juice
2 teaspoons crushed garlic
1 teaspoon Dijon mustard

Preparation / Directions:

1. Cook pasta in boiling water according to package instructions or until firm to the bite. Rinse with cold water. Drain and place in serving bowl. 2. In medium nonstick skillet sprayed with vegetable spray, sauté seafood just until cooked, approximately 3 minutes. Set aside. 3. Add red and green peppers, onions, carrots and green onions to pasta. Add seafood. 4. Make the dressing: In small bowl combine yogurt, mayonnaise, dill, lemon juice, garlic and mustard. Pour over pasta. Toss and chill TIPS: firm fish filets can be used with or instead of mixed seafood. Be careful not to over cool. Grilled fish instead of sautéed makes an excellent variation. Make ahead--Pasta salad and dressing can be prepared early in day. Do not toss until ready to serve. From "Rose Reisman Brings Home Light Pasta".
