Nor's Healthier Pasta Salad With a twist

Nor A.M


I love all kinds of pasta salads. I decided to make something a little different today. I created this salad to be lower in fat. The mayo is Cholesterol free. This pasta salad has a lot of flavor. You would never know it was lower fat. It is a little sweet with a little kick . It is delicious. Enjoy all!
