Yummy pasta salad!

on

I hosted a baby shower for my best friend Shannon this past Saturday.. See more photos HERE! I had an Easter theme because she is decorating the nursery for her little girl in bunnies so I thought it would be cute. I found this Easter pasta of all things at Winners actually and thought "aha! Pasta salad!":
Easter pasta?! So fun!
I found a really great recipe on Allrecipes.com for pasta salad and it was a huge hit. Here is the recipe:

Ingredients

  • 4 cups uncooked elbow macaroni
  • 1 cup mayonnaise
  • 1/4 cup distilled white vinegar
  • 2/3 cup white sugar
  • 2 1/2 tablespoons prepared yellow mustard
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 1 large onion, chopped
  • 2 stalks celery, chopped
  • 1 green bell pepper, seeded and chopped
  • 1/4 cup grated carrot (optional)
  • 2 tablespoons chopped pimento peppers (optional)

Directions

  1. Bring a large pot of lightly salted water to a boil. Add the macaroni, and cook until tender, about 8 minutes. Rinse under cold water and drain.
  2. In a large bowl, mix together the mayonnaise, vinegar, sugar, mustard, salt and pepper. Stir in the onion, celery, green pepper, carrot, pimentos and macaroni. Refrigerate for at least 4 hours before serving, but preferably overnight.
