DH, DD, DS & I loved this pasta salad! I used bow tie pasta and used a small bag of frozen mixed vegetables instead of green beans. Had small pieces of broccoli, cauliflower, corn, carrots. I used diced pepper jack cheese which gave it a little spice. The deli sold me a nice Black Forest Ham which I diced into nice chunky pieces. Is a pretty salad as well as very tasty. I will definately cook this wonderful recipe again. Thanks 3 K B's! Fixed for PAC.
This was a wonderful pasta salad that had many unique touches to set it apart from more typical pasta salads. I was pretty faithful to the recipe, using rotini pasta, 1 cup of ham, cheddar cheese, included the sweet onion, and using 4 hard-boiled eggs. These quantities worked out perfectly for our tastes. This salad made the perfect take-along lunch and packs nicely. I will definitely be making this again! Thanks for sharing.
Left out the artichoke hearts since I wasnt a fan of them, but the rest of the salad was great! I used low fat mayo and cut back on the oil a bit and it turned out great. Will try again an throw in some more veggies, thanks for posting!
