    Marsha D.'s Note:

    This recipe can either be made with your favorite macaroni shape pasta or you can use for a tasty pototo salad. I got this recipe from the Southern Magazine years ago when I first started cooking. I just changed the elbow macaroni to the ditalini (small tube shape) macaroni and added dill relish.

      This was a "hidden gem" of a recipe! I was just looking for a way to use up some dialini and came across this. I love the combo of flavors in the dressing (the chili powder makes it!). I used Heinz chili sauce instead of ketchup. I did prefer this when freshly made as the noodles soak up a lot of the sauce upon refrig. Thanks Marsha, for posting- Roxygirl

      I also made the pasta version, omitting the dill relish. The dressing is very good and a nice change from the usual. I did reduce the amount of salt and found the salad was still well seasoned.

      I made the pasta version. Nice and different. It has more of a sophisticated flavor than traditional macaroni salads. Thanx for posting this. I look forward to making the potato salad version!
