This is wonderful! It is really rich for a pasta salad. It’s best at room temperature.

I brought this to a friends house last evening where a group of 4 families had assembled. All three of the Moms asked for the recipe, so it had really good reviews. I only had elbow macaroni on hand, so I used it instead and I would caution one to use less elbow macaroni than corkscrew. I added additional dressing, but like my pasta salads really creamy or well dressed. Overall, it both looked and tasted good!
