Ruben Pasta Salad
Heart Smart p.96
In its original version, the Reuben sandwich is so full of fat and calories, a health-conscious eater wouldn't dare order one at a favorite deli restaurant! But here's a salad that provides the tastes you simply adore, with most of the fat and calories whisked out with Healthy Exchanges magic. Try this on St. Paddy's Day--or any time at all!
2 cups cold cooked rotini pasta, rinsed and drained
2 (2.5-ounce) packages Carl Budding 90% lean corned beef, shredded
3 (3/4 ounce) slices Kraft reduced-fart Swiss cheese, shredded
1/2 cup finely chopped onion
1 3/4 cups (one 14 1/2 ounce can) Frank's Bavarian-style sauerkraut, drained
1/4 cup Kraft fat-free Thousand Island Dressing
2 tablespoons Kraft fat-free mayonnaise
In a large bowl, combine rotini pasta, corned beef, Swiss cheese, onion, and sauerkraut. In a small bowl, combine Thousand Island dressing and mayonnaise. Add dressing mixture to pasta mixture. Mix gently to combine. Cover and refrigerate for at least 30 minutes. Gently stir again just before serving.
Hints: 1. 1 3/4 uncooked noodles usually cooks to about 2 cups.
2. If you cant find Bavarian-style sauerkraut, use regular sauerkraut, 1/2 teaspoon caraway seeds, and 1 teaspoon Brown Sugar Twin
