Ok here's what I did...you seriously might laugh when you realize how easy this is. All you really need is a microwave. Now, mind you,I didn't actually measure anything but the pasta so this will all be very approximate....
1/2 cup dry whole wheat macaroni (210 calories)
Cook it, drain it,
Then mix it in with all of the following:
1 can drained starkist tuna in water (100 calories)
About half a 6 oz serving of chobani, so that would be 50 calories
About 4 tablespoons fat free ranch, I used hidden valley brand (60 calories)
About 4 teaspoons Parmesan cheese (40 calories)
about half a teaspoon each of the following:
I literally mix it all in a bowl and then if its a bit too cool from the cold ingredients blending with the hot pasta, pop it in the microwave for a few seconds. (But I'm so low maintanance sometimes I don't even do that LoL)
So that all ends up being around 450 calories, but I probably overestimated the ranch and Parmesan. Next time ill try to measure everything out to make sure, and the chobani was a very rough estimate...I'm not used to working with ounces. But anyway, play around with it, adjust spices to your taste. I used to do something similar with ranch and sour cream but now I'm totally excited to use chobani instead. I seriously think it tastes better because it has such a rich texture.
Oh and obviously, I was making food just for one. I'm not sure how this would work if you're cooking for a family...maybe try putting the cold ingredients in a saucepan and heating up...I've never done that with yogurt so I don't know how that would turn out. But for me, the "mock" Microwave Alfredo is JUST fine! :)
