    Lizzybob's Note:

    Great for any hamburger supper or pot luck dinner. This is better than any pasta salad I have EVER had as I'm not big on the vinegar based ones. I'm always asked to bring this to family gatherings. This makes a ton, so you may want to cut it down. ABSOLUTELY WONDERFUL!!

    Units: US | Metric


    1. 1
      Boil pasta according to package directions.
    2. 2
      I usually add the baby carrots to the pasta about midway thru cooking.
    3. 3
      Place frozen peas in a large colinder and dump cooked pasta& carrots on top.
    4. 4
      Let drain.
    5. 5
      When carrots have cooled, I slice them in half lengthwise.
    6. 6
      Place pasta, peas& carrots in a large mixing bowl.
    7. 7
      Add miracle whip and catalina dressing until moistened.
    8. 8
      Sorry, I have no measurements as this is how I got the recipe.
    9. 9
      You just have to keep tasting and adding until you find the right taste.
    10. 10
      I like mine with more Catalina than Miracle Whip.
    11. 11
      I like to chill mine at least an hour before serving.
    12. 12
      Prior to serving add cherry tomatoes and cucumbers.
    13. 13
      After it chills, you may need to add more Catalina and/or Miracle Whip.
    14. 14
      If you make this the day before, don't add your cucumbers and tomatoes-it will make it watery.
    15. 15
      Feel free to change up your vegetables!

      This is a lovely recipe. Looks as good as it tastes. However, I did use mayo instead of the Miracle Whip. I also used grape tomatoes and seeded the cucumbers. Leftovers were not watery at all!
