This is one of my favorite pasta recipes and was always a staple on holiday dinners. Tomato is optional and as I only like tomatoes if they are green and fried I never add them.

Refrigerate/Freeze

Ingredients

1 box
rotini pasta
1 1/2 c
mayonnaise
1 small
green pepper
1 small
onion
1 can(s)
hormel smoked ham
1 small
tomato
2 Tbsp
white vinegar
black pepper to taste

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Cook pasta in salted water until AL dente. Once done drain and rinse in cold water.
2
Finely dice onion and Pepper add to cooked pasta. If using the tomato dice and add to pasta as well. Add Hormel ham, vinegar, and mayo. I never measure the mayo but guesstimate how much I usually add. The best way is to taste and add more if desired. Add black pepper to taste and mix all ingredients together.
