“The thought came to me, out of nowhere, to see what kind of pasta salad I could create with a box of mac 'n' cheese. Got so tired of the stuff back in college that I wouldn't eat it for at least 10 years. It's still not high on my list, but this is a real different presentation. I used light products since I'm always watching my weight, but if you want to "go full fat" feel free. There's no mayo in this, and no chopped up onions, because I don't particularly care for either of those. Anyway, I'd like to know what you think. Folks at work enjoyed it.”
