I know a lot of people have issues with folks reviewing after modifications, but that's what I'm doing. :-) I used two eggs instead of one, discarding the yolks (don't need the extra cholesterol). I used only one package of tuna. I added one stalk of celery, and a bit of onion -- both chopped. I put my frozen peas in the colander, and drain the pasta right over them. This elimanates a step. For the dressing, I used about half reduced fat Miracle Whip, and half reduced fat sour cream. I'm not a big fan of Miracle Whip, but I find I prefer it to mayo for most salads. I increased the overall quantity, because I don't like a dry macaroni salad. I added a little milk, to add moisture, and some zesty Italian dressing until it tasted right to me. I completely eliminated the extra salt and pepper. Lots of modifications, I know. But I appreciate the original recipe, because it is a good basic recipe and versatile enough to accept everyone's changes. I'll try this again, and I'll probably try other changes based on my family's comments. Thanks so much for the recipe!
