Ham Pasta Salad

Total Time

Prep: 20 min. + chilling

Makes

6 servings

I "invented" this salad as I went along...it's a combination of various pasta salad recipes I'd seen. It can be served as a side dish, of course. In summer, however, my husband doesn't care for hot meals, so I make it as a main dish. We're recent city transplants with two young children, ages 6 and 3.

Ingredients

  • 1 package (7 ounces) shell macaroni, cooked and drained
  • 2 cups cubed fully cooked ham
  • 1 cup chopped green pepper
  • 1 cup chopped tomato
  • 1/4 cup chopped onion
  • DRESSING:
  • 1/2 cup Miracle Whip
  • 1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • 2 tablespoons milk
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • Additional Parmesan cheese

Directions

  1. In a large bowl, toss macaroni with ham, green pepper, tomato and onion. In a small bowl, combine Miracle Whip, Parmesan cheese, milk and salt. Pour over pasta mixture and stir to coat. Cover and refrigerate.
  2. Sprinkle with additional Parmesan before serving.
