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.

How to Make Mom`s pasta salad


  • 1Cook pasta in salted water until AL dente. Once done drain and rinse in cold water.
  • 2Finely 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.
  • 3Chill in fridge for at least two hours or until cold. Serve and enjoy.
