3 cups 1/3-inch-diced day-old bread
2 tablespoons olive oil
1/2 cup freshly grated Parmesan
1/4 teaspoon kosher salt

Dressing:
1 cup freshly grated Parmesan
1/2 cup reduced-fat buttermilk

8 ounces tricolored fusilli, cooked and cooled


Directions:
For the croutons: Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F.

On a small rimmed baking sheet, toss the cubed bread with the olive oil, Parmesan and salt. Bake until golden brown and crispy, about 15 minutes.

For the dressing: Meanwhile, in a large bowl, whisk together the Parmesan, buttermilk, yogurt, olive oil, salt, pepper and garlic. Set aside to let the flavors marry for 5 minutes.
