Recipe by JillQH

I love this recipe...although I personally leave out the onion. This is a great summertime pasta salad and is super easy to make. You can easily alter any of the ingredients to your taste this is just a general recipe to follow. Make it yours!

This is a wonderful change to the basic macaroni salad. Made as written with the exception of leaving out the butter, I feel the sauce is creamy enough. Another great keeper recipe that will be made often. Thanks !!! :D

  2. Add margarine to macaroni.
  3. Mix all other ingredients together and lightly salt.
  4. Add to macaroni and mix.
  5. You can serve it warm or refridgerated!
