My ex-husband's Grandmother made this every year for Thanksgiving and my MIL makes it at Christmas and now at Thanksgiving since her mother has passed. I asked her one time why this was on her holiday menu and she said that her mom made it every year growing up. They live in south Mississippi, so I guess it's appropriate. I love it.
Notes from the Test Kitchen:
Moist, creamy and smooth this recipe is perfect. The light use of mayo is great... just enough to hold it together is all you need. This is lovely as a side dish, but would be great as a meal or an appetizer too!
small shell pasta ( i used 1/2 lb )
eggs hardboiled & chopped
onion finely chopped
dill pickle finely chopped
