Growing up my Daddy used to always make pasta salad...I just wasn't into it.
NOW, as an adult I love it. And this is how I make it.
1 bag of boiled tri colored noodles
5 or 6 boiled eggs
1 can of sliced black olives
6 to 10 green onions cut all the way down to the whites (use green & white part)
diced summer sausage
desired amount of mayo
Once you have cooked the noodles and eggs, peel the eggs and dice them up, slightly mash the yellows, combine it all in a big bowl with your black olives, onions, diced summer sausage and the desired amount of mayo to make it as moist as you would like and you are done. I like to eat it fresh and slightly warm but it is good strait out the fridge! YUM!
