Can y'all believe spring is almost here? Hallelujah! I tell ya, we've had a warm stretch this week and I've been dreaming about picnics and relaxing outside with my family. So in honor of warm weather, I am sharing a yummy picnic pasta salad! This should be your go-to pasta dish if you have any leftover ham from Easter too. And it has a little trick up its' sleeve too!
We are making this with Price*s Pimiento Cheese Spread! It might sound a little different but trust me, pimiento cheese totally works in this. What I love most about using pimiento cheese spread in a pasta salad is it already has seasoning added. So really, I am just adding a bit more mayo and a couple of other ingredients to 'beef' it up. It could not be simpler!
So, you have a couple of options when making this. You can use the Price*s Original Pimiento Cheese Spread for a slightly sweet and tangy taste.
Or you can go with Price*s Southern Style Pimiento Cheese Spread for a more savory, homestyle flavor.
Either way, you can't go wrong!
1 (16 oz.) box macaroni noodles
1 (12 oz.) container Price*s Original (or Southern Style) Pimiento Cheese spread
½ cup mayo
1 ½ cups diced ham
½ cup diced green onion
salt & pepper, to taste
Prepare macaroni per package directions.
Once macaroni is cooked, drain and rinse macaroni (in a colander) under cool water.
Drain well and pour into a large bowl.
Stir in Price*s Original Pimiento Cheese Spread and mayo.
Then stir in diced ham...
...and green onion. Give it a taste and season with salt & pepper if necessary.
