We kept all of the flavour and creaminess of pasta salad by combining Miracle Whip Calorie-Wise Dressing and Kraft Calorie-Wise Zesty Italian Dressing in place of 3/4 cup of mayonnaise and also used Light Cracker Barrell Cheddar Cheese instead of full-fat cheese. Simple substitutions plus adding some colourful vegetables, saves 176 calories and 22 grams of fat per serving making this dish an excellent source of vitamin A compared to a traditional pasta salad!
Boost the nutrition of this summer favourite with the addition of vegetables! This recipe is an excellent source of vitamin A from carrots, a good source of vitamin C from the red pepper and a calcium source from the cheese cubes. Eating right never tasted so good!

Love this pasta salad. I make it all the time using different types of pasta (my kids love it with tri-colour fusilli) and whatever veggies I have on hand (red, green, yellow or orange peppers, cucumber, green onions, etc.). I grate the carrots to save time and to make it easier for my 2 year old to eat. This is one of the few things I can send to school with my son that I know he'll always eat.
I have made this recipe often. Even my picky kids love it. I also change it up by adding whatever vegetables I have in the crisper...broccoli, cauliflower, red, gren & yellow peppers, cucumber...it is all wonderful!
