4 Tbsp. mayonnaise (low fat)
1/2 tsp. salt

Comments:  This recipe came from an author friend of mine Lawrence Johnson, Sr. - The Budget Gourmet.  Larry has written 4 novels, so far, Escape 2 Earth, Terror on Telderan, Planet of Doom and Return 2 Earth.  As well as being an author he holds a cooking class for healthier eating.  This is one of his recipes.  When I made this dish I did, of course, make a change or should I say an addition.  I added about 1 tsp. of horseradish which made a great dish even greater.  This is also a dish you can tone down or spice up.  I cut the garlic and onion powders down to 1/2 tsp. each and did ad an extra Tbsp. of mayo.  Plus I used penna pasta instead of elbow, for no real reason.  This would also be good with a sprinkle of Old Bay.  Think With Your Taste Buds when playing with this recipe.
