Ingredients:

  • 1 (10-ounce) can condensed 98% fat-free, reduced-sodium cream of mushroom soup
  • 1/2 cup light sour cream
  • 1/2 pound whole-wheat rotini pasta, cooked according to package directions

Directions:
1. Preheat the oven to 350° F.
2. In a bowl, blend soup with sour cream until smooth. Add pasta and pimiento; set aside.
