HART’s Famous Pasta Salad Recipe
INGREDIENTS AND STUFF YOU WILL NEED
You can use use either the Pasta Salad or the Creamy Salad Club House Pasta Prima dressing. The Creamy Salad dressing has the macaroni on it, and I follow the preparation directions from there. However, I like the flavor from just the Pasta Salad dressing and use the other’s preparation directions (not the one on the package)
I recommend you buy this from Sobey’s – 900g of Fusili of the Primo brand, which is low in fat. Some of the other fusili looks different, and Rotini, which looks similar does not taste the same (i.m.o.). Superstore has some fancy fusili in small boxes but it’s vegetable fusili pasta and not recommended in this recipe.
PREPARATION OF THE INGREDIENTS
I clean and break up all the broccoli into little pieces and remove the stems and just leave the crown and heads in a separate container and do not mix it yet with the pepper mixture .. I have several Budweiser pints so I just use that

AND DON’T FORGET YOUR FOOD TASTERS!
LET’S MAKE SOME PASTA!
When it looks and tastes nice and tender and fluffy, drain the large pot into the strainer in the sink, and pour cold water of the pasta salad and mix it good in the strainer while you are cooling it down.
ENJOY .. HART’s FAMOUS PASTA SALAD!
I have calculated the average weight watcher points on previous attempts and it averaged to approximately be 3 points per cup of HART’s Famous Pasta Salad (actually 2.8 but we rounded up). I personally think it is less than that and take 5 points for 2 cups .. My wife still takes 3 points for 1 cup. I think when I originally calculated the point count, I was using lite mayonaisse (not blue menu) and regular milk. You can do the math
