1 lb macaroni (penne, shells, elbows)
Assorted vegetables (broccoli, shredded carrots, radishes, green peppers, red onions, and cherry tomatoes cut in1/2)
3 T salad supreme
½ tsp Thyme
¼ C garlic powder
¼ C Splenda (may substitute sugar)
¼ C Catalina Salad dressing (light is ok)
Mayonnaise – enough to coat all ingredients

Mix all ingredients together, chill and serve

If the garlic powder is to strong add more Splenda until you approve of the taste.

This macaroni salad is a hit everytime I bring it. It has been requested by teachers for PTO functions over and over again. I still bring it to the elementary school my son attended for them....he is now a junior in high school. Kids eat it all the time and increasing for a group is easy!
