Great tip for any cold pasta-based salad, thanks! I realized last time I made a pasta salad that the dressing soaked right up into the noodles and it tasted too "dry." I was trying to figure out why...This will do the trick, I'm sure! Thanks!

This "trick" definitely works well. I always have to add more mayo before serving macaroni salad since the dressing always soaks in leaving it dry. I was amazed at the difference it made to let the cooked macaroni sit overnight in the fridge with a cup of water. No more dry macaroni salad.. it stayed creamy even the day after serving it. Thanks for sharing ..it's definitely a keeper.
