Oriental Pasta Salad

READY IN: 20mins
Recipe by diner524

With a wonderful combination of colors and flavors, this pasta salad goes great with barbecued chicken or pork. I found this recipe in a magazine, I think TOH, but not sure. Not yet tried by me but here for safe keeping because it sounds good and a little different. Time does not include chilling time.

I spotted this during recipe gathering for ZWT and it appealed to me. I made it for Sunday brunch to serve with a quiche and fresh fruit salad. I thought it had a colorful presentation which is always a plus for me. I used preshredded carrots and sprinkled the top with black sesame seeds. The dressing was made as directed and made enough to leave the macaroni well coated. Thank you for sharing the recipe!
