Italian Pasta Salad I

Reviewed: Jul. 28, 2013
This recipe was a delicious spin on the traditional Italian pasta salad with Italian dressing. The dressing combination makes this pasta salad scrumptious. To make it a bit healthier I used yogurt based Caesar dressing, found in the produce section called Caesar Parmigiano, that was 45 calories and 2.5 grams fat per 2 tbsps. It went perfect with the brand name Lite House Italian dressing with similar nutrition information I used. I would highly recommend the Caesar dressing I used as full calorie tasting alternative to the actual full calorie versions, in fact it might be a bit tastier. At first I used the dressings in proportions given in the recipe and it was delicious, but to make it creamier for my tastes I ended up using about 15% more Caesar then Italian. I’m not a big fan of bell peppers, so I used my preference of veggies including broccoli, cucumber, cauliflower, red onion, and black olives which were terrific. Next time I might add sugar snap peas. I brought some to share with my co-workers and they couldn’t get enough of this salad. This recipe is a great non-run-of-the-mill pasta salad base that you can dress up with your favorite veggies and add-ins. I highly recommend it as a fantastic make ahead lunch for work or to bring to a summer cook out, you won’t be disappointed!

Delicious Ham and Potato Soup

Reviewed: Feb. 7, 2011
This was so delicious and simple to make. I brought some leftovers to work for rave reviews. The only adjustments I made was to use store-bought chicken broth instead of water and bouillon and after adding the milk cook on medium-high heat to thicken it up prior to putting it in with the potatoes. Next time I will add carrots for color.
