Mama Mia !! A delizioso Antipasto !!!!!

Mama Mia this stuff, she's a GOOD !!! I found the recipe in the latest Weight Watchers five ingredient, 15 minute cookbook (actually it's more like a magazine -- I found it in the magazine section at the grocery store last week). Anyhow, I had fun making this stuff and taking pictures as I was making it (my new camera has a setting for taking pictures of food , so I've been subjecting all of you to my food pictures....OK, so I haven't quite got the hang of it .... that first picture is a bit blurry, and the second one has a big ol' glare on it ..... oh well, I'll have to actually read the instruction book one of these days!)

OK... so here's the recipe for Antipasto Salad.

1 9 oz pkg fresh light four-cheese ravioli
1 14 oz can quartered artichoke hearts, drained and roughly chopped
2 tablespoons chopped drained oil-packed sun-dried tomatoes
1/4 cup sliced ripe olives
1/4 cup torn fresh basil leaves
1/2 cup fat-free balsamic vinaigrette

Cook pasta according to package directions, omitting salt; drain.
Combine cooked pasta, artichokes, and remaining ingredients in a large bowl. Serve immediately.

Makes 4 servings. 4 points/serving

Now run along and make this stuff .... and resist the urge to grab a fork and the entire bowl and sit in front of the boob tube and scarf it all down in one sitting !(not that I would EVER do that!!)
