Curried Chicken Pasta Salad


Today for lunch I threw together this Curried Chicken Pasta Salad with ingredients that I had on hand.  I made a few changes, as listed, and the end result was delicious!

-I used fat-free half and half instead of the heavy cream, and I only used 1/2 cup of it because that's all I had on hand
-I used light mayo and sour cream
-I added 1/4 tsp cayenne pepper
-I added 6 chopped scallions
-I changed the raisins to dried cranberries and used 1 cup of them
-I used whole wheat pasta
-I used 1 cup of almonds

So it's a nutty fruity pasta. Most enjoyable during a hot summer day I imagine.
