Ingredients

16 oz
whole grain pasta (shells or rotini)
1 1/2 c
canalope melon
1 1/2 c
honeydew melon
1 1/2 c
pineapple ( 1" cubes)
1 1/2 c
fresh red seedless grapes (halved)
6 large
strawberries, fresh
8 oz
cream cheese
4 Tbsp
limeade, frozen
2 Tbsp
honey

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Boil pasta in sugared water as directed on package for al dente. I add about 1/8c sugar to my water while boiling the pasta. That way the pasta is sweet not salty.
2
Drain & cool pasta. Do Not rinse.
3
While pasta is cooling cut fruit. If I am in a hurry I buy cut fruit in the produce department. Cut the grapes in half. It is just easier to eat. Set fruit aside.
4
In a bowl mix cream cheese, limeaid and honey until smooth.
5
In a large bowl combine all ingredients. (Pasta & fruit). Mix well but don't break up pasta. Now add your cream cheese dressing. You want is well dressed but not soupy. Refrigerate until ready to enjoy.
