PREP TIME15 minutes

COOK TIME10 minutes

ADDITIONAL TIME2 hours 1 second

TOTAL TIME2 hours 25 minutes 1 second


  • 12 oz. pasta – short pasta such as penne, farfalle, fusilli or rotini or Fiber Gourmet Pasta 
  • 2 cups cherry or grape tomatoes, halved 
  • 6-8 fresh basil leaves, chopped
  • 4 oz. fresh mozzarella-I like to use the small fresh mozzarella balls or dice fresh mozzarella into bite size pieces 
  • 1 1/2 cups cooked chicken breast, diced into bite sized pieces 
  • 1-2 tsp Balsamic glaze, garnish

Dressing Ingredients:

  • 1 Tbsp extra virgin olive oil
  • 3 Tbsp white balsamic vinegar or regular balsamic vinegar would also work
  • 2 tsp sugar or zero point white granulated sugar sweetener* points are the same regardless of which one you use 
  • 1 garlic clove, minced 
  • 1 tsp kosher salt
  • ½ tsp ground pepper
  • ¼ tsp dried thyme
  • ¼ tsp dried oregano


  1. Bring a pot of water to a boil and season with salt. Add the pasta and cook just until al dente. Drain and rinse with cold water. Then set aside to cool.
  2. In a small mixing bowl, whisk together the olive oil, white balsamic vinegar, sugar or sweetener, garlic clove, salt, pepper, thyme, and oregano.
  3. In a large bowl, combine the cooked pasta, tomatoes, basil, chicken, and mozzarella.
  4. Pour the dressing into the pasta mixture and toss to evenly coat.
  5. Chill for 1-2 hours before serving. Remove from fridge. Stir pasta salad after it’s chilled to ensure the dressing is well absorbed. 
  6. Then right before serving drizzle the pasta salad with balsamic glaze for added deliciousness!
  7. Store leftovers in an airtight container in refrigerator for 3-5 days.

I loved this side salad before WW and it’s definitely become a staple. And 0 points! **Unfortunately I don’t measure so these are rough estimates.1
