This Creamy Ranch Pasta Salad is only 3 points per serving with blue, green and purple!
You’re probably thinking the serving size is like 1/4 cup or something small, but no!! It’s ONE CUP per serving! That’s a lot of pasta salad for only 3 points!
Let me tell you, this is going to be my go-to side dish in the summer.
Instead of using mayonnaise for this pasta salad I used fat-free sour cream. To make it full of flavor I mixed the sour cream with ranch seasoning.
It’s magical! If I want a quick vegetable dip I’ll mix together the sour cream and ranch seasoning, so I already knew it was good.
I figured why not use it in a pasta salad!? Guess what? It works great!
You can also use fat-free Greek yogurt if you don’t like fat-free sour cream. I just think the yogurt has more of a bitter taste.
I also used broccoli, ham and reduced-fat cheddar cheese. This is a delicious pasta salad. I hope you like it as much as I do!
This is definitely a recipe that the ingredients matter when counting points. Here is everything I used with the point values:
Yield: 10 (1 cup) servings – 3 points per serving for blue, green and purple
- 2 cups uncooked ditalini pasta
- 1 cup fat free sour cream
- 2 teaspoons ranch seasoning mix
- 2 cups chopped broccoli
- 4 oz. diced ham
- 1/4 cup reduced-fat cheddar cheese
- Salt and pepper, to taste.
Cook pasta according to the directions on the box, then drain and rinse with cold water.
Mix together the sour cream and ranch seasoning in a large bowl. Then add the cooked noodles and stir to combine.
Add the broccoli, ham and cheddar cheese and stir together. Taste to see if you need to add salt and pepper. Enjoy!
