Recipe by KookieMomster

My family thinks that I am crazy when I put the mayo on the warm unrinsed pasta. But I never hear any complaints the next day. The heat brings out the flavors, mmmmmm.

I halved this recipe because I wanted it for a side dish. One and a half cups of Miracle Whip did the job so for full recipe I guess about 3 cups, cause one jar was not helpful to me. Everyone said how very good this was. I thought I had goofed cause I didn't salt the pasta but it was tasty. I had 9 people for dinner and all 8 who tried the salad loved it. My youngest daughter wouldn't try it because it had onions so her vote doesn't count. Great for a hot day, esp if you cook the pasta by recipe ID# 30358
