Holiday Pasta Salad

Submitted by: DOITNOWM

Introduction

Make with rainbow rotini pasta--or even better is a Christmas Tree shaped pasta found in specialty shops. The red and greens are very festive. I use Best Foods Canola Mayonnaise which is half the calories of regular mayo--you could go fat free or olive oil mayo too. I'd like to try it with plain yogurt, but haven't yet.
