BLT Pasta Salad Recipe

To go along with my little fitness journey, I have been trying to find recipes that are maybe a little bit healthier than what I would normally eat.

Insert Yummly. It a little recipe sharing app I downloaded ages ago now. What I love about it is the fact that you can filter what you want by its nutrients and calorie content. Something I’m interested in as I am trying to lose weight.

Today I tried the BLT Pasta salad. Its total calorie content comes in at around 450kcal which is around what I’m aiming for, for each meal (I used to eat a lot more. A LOT more).

For one person you will need the following things:

1 piece of bacon

1-2 lettuce leaves, or a lettuce mix of about 1 handful

1/2 tomato

1/2 cup of bowtie pasta

1 tablespoon of Mayonaise

1 teaspoon of bbq sauce

salt and pepper to taste

Firstly, bring a pot of water to the boil and add the pasta – it will need around 10 minutes to cook properly so make sure you have the time to do that. Cut up the lettuce and tomato and place in a bowl with the mayo, bbq sauce, and salt & pepper. Cut the bacon into smallish squares and fry. Drain pasta and add that and the bacon to the bowl. Mix well.

Tada an easy and healthier lunch or dinner for anyone. 19380005_1873242582996188_3706984190118461440_n
