Creamy honey dijon macaroni pasta salad! Forget all of your past notions of what a macaroni salad should be – this fun new twist on an old classic will leave you craving more!
12 ounces macaroni pasta, cooked according to package’s instructions
1 cup frozen peas, thawed
1/2 red bell pepper, diced
1/2 red onion, diced
1 tablespoon Italian seasoning
1 cup mayo (I used reduced fat but any will work)
1/3 cup dijon mustard
1/4 cup honey
3 teaspoons garlic powder
2 teaspoons salt
1 teaspoon black pepper
optional: 1/2 cup grated/shredded parmesan cheese
Combine cooked pasta (cooled to room temperature), peas, peppers, and onions and stir well.
In a small bowl whisk together mayo, dijon mustard, honey, garlic powder, salt, and pepper.
Add mayo mixture to pasta bowl and mix to coat well. Taste and add salt and pepper if desired. Cover and chill at least 1 hour before serving. Optional: sprinkle parmesan cheese on top.
