Recipe by The Pantry Elf

This pasta salad is my mom's recipe, and it's light and flavorful. The secret to getting the most flavor into it is to grate the veggies in. Perfect for a big crowd, a picnic, or the perfect side dish for sandwiches and barbeque.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Cook the penne in a large pot of salted boiling water until tender (about 8-10 minutes). Drain and rinse with cold water, set aside.
  2. In a large bowl, grate in the onion, bell pepper, celery, and carrot.
  3. Shred the crab meat into the same bowl, then pour in the penne.
  4. Add remaining ingredients and mix well, seasoning with salt and pepper to taste.
  5. Chill at least 4 hours before serving to allow flavors to blend. Enjoy!
