This is my great Aunt's recipe. Every holiday, she would send a jar of this to our house because she knew I liked it so much! Come to think of it, I'm pretty sure I ate the whole jar!

Thank you Aunt Pauline :)

Ingredients

1 lb
elbow macaroni, sometimes i use small shells or rotini
6-7 slice
velveeta cheese
1/2-3/4 c
dill pickle juice
3-4 Tbsp
mayonaise
1 Tbsp

dill pickles, chopped (i usually use 4 pickles but you can add less depending on your taste preference)
1/4
onion, chopped
2
strips celery, chopped
2
tomatoes, chopped
ground pepper (optional)
i use my pampered chef alligator chopper for the eggs, pickles, onion, celery and tomatoes because i like the pieces small

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Cook macaroni according to package. Drain. While macaroni and eggs are cooking, chop the pickles, onion, celery and tomatoes.
2
Melt cheese over macaroni. Set aside.
3
Mix pickle juice, mayonnaise and mustard. Pour over macaroni.
4
Once eggs are boiled, peel and chop. Add eggs, pickles, onion, celery and tomatoes to macaroni. It's ok to add the eggs while they're warm.
5
Mix everything together.
6
Depending on your preference for the texture, you may want to add more mayonnaise. I also add ground pepper to mine.
