Serves:

8-12

Prep:

1 Hr

Cook:

10 Min

Method:

Stove Top

Ingredients

1 box
macaroni, elbow 12-14 oz (i use barilla plus)
1 c
frozen peas
1 c
chopped celery
1 c
carrot, shredded
1 c
red onion
2 c
mayonnaise, light (i used olive oil based)
1
lemon, zested and juiced
garlic powder to taste

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Boil the macaroni in lightly salted water for 7 minutes. Put the cup of frozen peas in collander, then drain the macaroni over that. This thaws out the peas perfectly. Let cool under cool running water for a few minutes.
2
Mix the mayo, lemon zest and juice, and garlic powder. Then add the chopped vegetables. Stir in the macaroni and peas until combined. Refrigerate for at least a couple of hours, then serve.
3
I like to use the leftovers mixed with tuna fish for a quick lunch.
