1
Preheat the oven to 425 °F (220 °C). Arrange the chopped pepper, in a single layer, on a parchment-lined baking sheet. Bake for 10 minutes or until softened and coloured around the edges. Cool completely.

Meanwhile, bring a large pot of water to a rapid boil. Add rotini and sweet potato. Cook for 8 minutes; add edamame beans during the last minute of cooking. Drain well and rinse with cold water until rotini is cold. Add to a large serving bowl. Stir in the cranberries, feta, basil and roasted peppers.

Dressing: Whisk the yogurt with the milk, vinegar, mayonnaise, oil, honey and garlic until well combined. Pour over the pasta mixture and toss until well combined.
