I love pasta. Any kind. So as I was perusing my recipes the other day, and didn't see a pasta salad recipe, I set out to make that right. So here you go....a pasta salad that's really good. Makes enough to feed about 15 people but can be doubled with no problem. You can also make extra dressing to toss with the pasta after it's set overnight to make it extra yummy!
1 8-ounce package shell pasta ~ cooked, drained and set aside
2 eggs ~ hard boiled & chopped
1/2 cup red onion ~ diced
1/2 cup chopped green bell pepper
1/2 cup chopped red bell pepper
1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
1/2 cup chopped green onion ~ optional
1/2 cup mayonnaise
1/4 cup sour cream
2 green onions, chopped
1 teaspoon prepared mustard
1 teaspoon hot pepper sauce
1 teaspoon paprika ~ for garnish
In a large serving bowl, toss together the pasta, egg, bell peppers, onion and cheese.
a separate bowl, mix together the mayonnaise, sour cream, green onion,
mustard, and hot pepper sauce. Stir until well blended.
Pour dressing over the pasta, and toss to coat thoroughly.
Sprinkle with paprika.
Cover tightly, and chill 4 hours, or overnight for best flavor.
