Deviled Egg Pasta Salad



A spin-off of my mom's homemade potato salad recipe, 
this pasta salad is like eating that + a really good deviled egg!

How is everyone's day so far?

Good, great, grand, wonderful?  {Happy Gilmore reference, if you caught that.}  It's Friday! I don't know about you but I am forever grateful that Friday has arrived.  Its been a week.

This weekend is going to be filled with a play date, making mints with a girlfriend for her baby shower and as usual, some recipe development.  {That is the professional phrase for "destroying my kitchen"}.

We've got a scant amount of this pasta salad left - such a shame.  Thank god, I just made half a batch, this makes a LOT and if I would have made the whole batch we'd be eating on it till next Friday.

I have a real issue with some pasta salads.  You know the ones that have a weird "tang" to them and taste really sugary?  Yeah, I don't like those kinds.  I like mine with a bit more zest, more savory and without sugar.

And if you love deviled eggs, you'll love this one.  It's the best of both worlds.  Deviled egg + pasta + creamy style dressing.  Yum!

This is the perfect dish to bring to a barbecue, but make sure to make it the night before.  It needs time for the flavors to blend together.  Trust me, make this the day before.  Did you hear that?

  4. My family loved this. Mother-in-law still talks about how much she enjoyed it and we had it over a month ago. She will be happy to see it on today's family dinner menu.
