Great recipe, I eliminated the onion so it would have a longer fridge life and figured the cheese wasn't needed. Maybe add chicken next time, everyone loved it, thank you!!!

I have made this recipe probably close to 20 times by now, and feel like it's only fair to rate it! It's the best pasta salad recipe I have ever tasted. My husband also loves it, not to mention every other person who has tried it. I usually double it and use dill relish (for convenience). I have used both chopped pickles and relish, but found there is really no difference in taste. Thanks for such a great recipe!

I modified it a tad, forgot to pick up the peas, so put in red pepper instead, otherwise followed it to a tee! Fabulous, took it to work and everyone raved about it. Thanks for the recipe, it's a keeper!

The dressing was great! I was looking for a macaroni salad a little above average and this was it for us. Thanks for sharing, I will be making this often.

A 2am pregnant craving sent me searching for an easy pasta salad recipe. I had all the ingredients on hand for this, except celery, and it was quick to make. I saved some cooling time by tossing the pasta with ice cubes, then draining again. I used dill relish instead of chopped, reduced the cider vinegar to just a tablespoon, and used Splenda. I really enjoyed the crisp freshness of the peas, and the texture of the egg and cheese with the pasta. This would probably be great with broccoli and tuna. Great recipe!

This was a nice creamy pasta salad. I didn't have any dill pickles so I omitted them. I used Hellmans light mayo and splenda. Thanks.

awesome and different pasta salad :) DH really loved it! The flavors all go together really well, DH really enjoyed the cheese cubes and the tangy flavor from the vinegar. I will make this again for sure!

I wanted to put together a quick macaroni salad to go along with bbq country style pork ribs and vinegary coleslaw, and this was perfect. I omitted the peas and used a bit of onion powder instead of the fresh onion and thought it was delicious. It was easy to make with items kept on hand and seems flexible with the ingredients. It is creamy and tangy and wonderful the next day as well. Thank you for sharing and I would recommend this recipe to anyone looking for a simple and tasty side dish.
