The Best Pasta Salad Ever

Simple & Quick Pasta Salad! 
Winner! Winner!

I love making meals that are quick and simple; they are perfect for not only me but our family.  Normally it is just me and my kiddos, so I like low maintenance meals.  So I wanted to share this tasty new recipe we tried this week.  I don't know if you have ever seen Pioneer Woman on Food Network, but she is my number 1 right now.   I am so glad I was bored one day searching for something to watch on tv and BAM there she was in the On Demand menu.  I have watched several of her shows I haven't seen on the tv via internet, checked out her blogs and scanned through recipes on Food Network.com.  Obsessed, slightly but it is for a good cause.

I really like watching things others create and even more when it relates to my family.  Complicated recipes with ingredients I have to google to find out what they are just do not excite me and more than likely I won't be too interested in searching for recipes from them for ideas.  When I can watch a show and have the ingredients already in my kitchen without having to make a special trip to the store to get the ingredients I am forever loyal.

I know, I know get on with the recipe already.  Ree had made a "Kid Friendly Pasta Salad," but I changed a few of the ingredients because that is just what I do.

Beautiful!

Ingredients:

12 oz of Noodles
1/2 cup Mayo
1/2 cup Whole Milk
4 Tbl.White Vinegar
1/2 tsp salt
Dash of sugar
6 slices crispy Bacon
2 diced Tomatoes
8 oz. Sprinkle Cheese or Cubed Cheese
Sprinkle of Chives
Sprinkle of Parmesan Cheese
  • Boil your noodles and drain. 
  • Crispify your bacon and place on paper towels to soak up excess fat; then crumble.
  • Dice up your tomatoes.
  • Whisk Mayo, Milk, Vinegar, Salt and Sugar together in a bowl.
  • Add the wet mix to your noodles, then the bacon and tomatoes.
  • Add your cubed cheese or sprinkle cheese. (I didn't have enough block cheese on hand)
  • Mix until blended and serve.
I sprinkled some parmesan cheese and chives on top and served with Focaccia bread.  It was a bit tangy for us the first go round, but the next day cold it was just delicious and the flavors blended so well. I would chill this before serving.  This will make a come back in our home for sure, but with cubed cheese of course.

I am going to try this over the weekend for my kids. It really is a healthy way to get your kids to eat. Plus you add a lot more stuff and they would not know what is in every bite. I am following you now and would appreciate a follow back.
