Garden Patch Pasta Salad

This is a great salad. If you grow your own zucchini, you know you always end up with a lot at one time. This is a great way to use up those zucchini.

Ingredients

  • 2 cups elbow macaroni, uncooked
  • 2 cups zucchini cut into cubes
  • 1/2 cup red or green pepper strips, cut in 1 inch pieces
  • Bacon bits
  • 3 hard cooked eggs chopped
  • 1 tsp. oregano
  • 1/2 tsp. onion powder
  • 3/4 lb. Velveeta cheese spread, cubed
  • 3/4 cup mayonnaise
  • 3 Tbsp. milk
  • 2 tsp. mustard

Directions

Cook macaroni according to package directions. Drain. In a large bowl, combine macaroni, zucchini, peppers, bacon bits, eggs and seasonings. Mix lightly.

Meanwhile, in a med. saucepan, combine cheese, mayonnaise, milk and mustard; stir over low heat until cheese spread is melted. Combine with macaroni; toss lightly. Chill 3 to 4 hours. (I also like this served warm.)

Sorry for the typo's in the recipe. Just got a new keyboard. It takes some getting used to. The ingredients should say 3/4 c. mayonaise and 2 tsp. of mustard. I'm sure most of you could figure that out. Sorry!

Editor's Note: We fixed it so it is right in the main post now. We should have caught that before publishing it.
