Makeover - How We Did It

We've taken a favourite pasta salad and made it over. We substituted multi-grain macaroni for regular macaroni. We also substituted Miracle Whip Calorie-Wise Dressing for regular dressing and low fat sour cream for half-and-half. This version saves 30 calories and 3 grams of total fat per serving.

    Delicious. Taste tested it while it was still warm & it was difficult to stop myself from eating the entire thing. Haha. Added my own little twists; no broccoli, substituted red peppers for green, less sour cream, more mayo, and a little italian dressing. So good.
