~creamy macaroni salad~

by - June 04, 2019

If you follow me on Instagram, you've probably noticed, along with my craft projects, I've been sharing lots of homemade meals.  I love to cook and am always on the hunt for new recipes to try.  Today, though, I'm sharing a simple macaroni salad recipe using Tuscanini Foods' Fusilli Tricolori Pasta* ($3.99 for 16 ounce bag).
I chose the Tricolori because it's one of my kids' favorite pastas.  To start, simply follow the directions on the package to cook the pasta.  While the pasta is cooking, start slicing and dicing your peppers and onions.  I didn't have celery, so I used some sliced carrots in the salad for an extra crunch.  You can really add any vegetable that you fancy.  My husband even likes peas in his macaroni salad!
Once the pasta is drained and cooled, add it to a large bowl with your pepper and onions.  Add one cup of mayonaise (or more or less depending upon your taste), one tablespoon of vinegar (regular or rice vinegar as I used) and salt & pepper.  Mix all ingredients together.  Chill before serving.

Easy peasy and oh-so-delicious!  I really enjoyed the Tuscanini pasta brand.  If you've never heard of them, here is some info:
