4th of July Recipe Exchange

Barrie invited me to join in a fun 4th of July-inspired recipe exchange. I decided to share my MIL's recipe for macaroni salad. I don't know where she got the recipe, but I've gotten a lot of rave reviews. And it makes a big old bowl, marinating itself as the days go by...

Marinated Mostaccioli
(As evidenced by the name of the recipe, it calls for mostaccioli, but as I think that noodle is a little unwieldy, I use penne--just as good)

1 16 oz. pkg mostaccioli (penne), cooked and drained

Cook the following together:
1 1/2 c. cider vinegar
1 1/2 c. sugar
1 tsp. salt
1 tsp. coarse pepper
1 tsp. garlic or garlic salt
2 Tbsp. prepared mustard

1 medium red onion
1 medium cucumber
1/2 gr. (or colorful) pepper

Mix noodles, vegetables, and marinade. MUST stand overnight.


Now, head over to Barrie's to see what other yummy recipes have been shared!
Happy 4th!
