    Macaroni Salad

    Not one for leafy salads? Pasta salad can sometimes be a mayonnaise-y calorie/fat bomb but this version is light and fresh. Cook and chill a box of ditalini pasta then add peas, bacon and this amazing lemon-thyme dressing. Yes, homemade dressing takes an extra sec but this one adds an irresistible little tang to this dish.
