Kind of just figure out what is in your pantry, and toss stuff in until it looks good, or sounds good. This came from Obesity Help. I have not tried this, just posting for safe keeping.

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 2 cups of dreamfield elbow pasta noodles
  • 1 cup of oikos non-fat plain Greek yogurt or 1 cup fage non-fat plain Greek yogurt
  • 3 tablespoons Miracle Whip, lite
  • 12 ounce hidden valley ranch fiesta dip mix (1/2 of 1 packet, they make other varieties if the Fiesta blend does not appeal to your tastes, also )
  • 12-34 cup fresh broccoli florets, halved and rinsed thoroughly (per your preference)
  • 12 fresh carrots, julienned or 12 thinly sliced carrot
  • 14 cup jarred pimentos, drained and diced
  • Optional additions for different flavor profile

  • hard-boiled egg, diced
  • 5 -7 slices turkey bacon, cooked over medium heat until crispy, drained, then chopped into small pieces
  • 10 -20 turkey pepperoni, quartered
  • fresh lime zest
  • couple teaspoons fresh lime juice
  • reduced fat sargento pepper jack cheese or reduced fat shredded sharp cheddar cheese

Directions

  1. Cook macaroni as directed on package. Rinse with cold water until chilled.
  2. Add the next 3 ingredients, mix thoroughly. Add fresh veggies, cover and chill for at least 1 hour before serving. The longer this one sits, the better the flavors taste.
