Conditional formula - highlight cells not containing formulas

Define Name:
 "CellHasFormula"

formula in the "Refers to" box
 =GET.CELL(48,INDIRECT("rc",FALSE))

apply the conditional formatting - formula:
=CellHasFormula  


The above method provides the means to set a conditional formatting to cells that contain formulas only.  I am looking to do the opposite...for a specific set of cells I want to highlight them if they contain anything but a formula.  This way the user will see right away if he overwrote the formula cell by accident.  Is there away to modify the above method to do this, or is there a completely different approach to this?

=NOT(GET.CELL(48,INDIRECT("rc",FALSE)))
