Pasta Salad with Eggs

Here's a healthy dinner Idea. Easy to make and low on carbs. I made this for dinner tonight and loved it.

Ingredients: Serve 1
1 egg ( use golden yolk eggs)
1/4 cup spiral pasta
1 small carrot
5 green beans
1/2 cup cauliflower florets
3 fresh spinach leaves
1 tbsp mayonnaise
salt and pepper to taste

Peel the carrots and cut in to quarters. Break the edges and de-vein the green beans.
Boil pasta and egg in salted water and put a steamer on top and steam the vegs till bite tender but not mashy. Put the spinach at last for steaming. 
Keep the vegs and spinach aside to cool. Peel the shell off the egg and cut in half.
Make sure the pasta is boiled perfectly and soft. Drain the water and keep aside to cool.
Cut the vegs to desired pieces. Add in the pasta. Season with salt and pepper and add mayonnaise. Refrigerate to cool if desired. Place the halved egg on top and serve.
