Macaroni & Egg Salad

There is just something special about macaroni.
Maybe because I always loved it as a kid and it was easy to make.
Don't you just love how spaghetti sauce just hides inside the little tube shapes?
Same goes for eggs.
Fried, scrambled, hard boiled. I love eggs.
Eggs may be the only reason for me to try and bake.
Need to get more eggs and practice, practice, practice...
Now macaroni and eggs together. Hmmm..... sounds like a plan.

Macaroni and egg salad.
1/ 2 red onion finely diced into cubes
1 / 4 cup of pickled relish
3 cups of mayonnaise
1 tbsp. of Worcestershire sauce
4 celery stalks finely diced in proportion to the onion
12 medium eggs (hard - boiled )
2 lbs. of macaroni (usually 1 box ) elbows or substitute with penne
1 tsp. or more of hot sauce ( depending on your tolerance for pain )
salt and pepper to taste

In a large pot , boil water, add pasta and cook roughly for 10 minutes or more.
I like mine al dente.
Strain pasta and cool.
In another large pot, place eggs in boiling water, cook for 10 minutes.
Remove from heat, cover, and let eggs sit for 5 more minutes.
When eggs are cool, peel eggs and chop the same size as the onions and celery.

Mix the eggs, pasta, relish, mayonnaise, onions, celery, Worcestershire sauce, hot sauce,
and salt and pepper to taste. Refrigerate.

This may be the perfect picnic item. Great for a summer day.
You can make this low fat and healthy by using wheat pasta and low fat mayonnaise.

Good for kids. My daughter is the perfect taste tester.
Besides, she loves pasta and eggs like her dad.
She loves her daddy and knows he is a pretty darn good cook.

Macaroni and eggs. It's like love and marriage.
They just go well together.

Love to eat,
