A sweet dressing which combines mayonnaise and sugar is tossed with spiral pasta, cheddar, onion and broccoli.

  • Servings: 6

Ingredients:

2 cups Mayonnaise
1 cup Sugar, or to taste
1 box Tri-colored Spiral Pasta
1 Medium Red Onion, finely chopped
2 cups Shredded Cheddar Cheese
1 Medium Head Broccoli, chopped into small florets

Directions:

Mix sugar and mayonnaise; set aside.

Boil noodles until done; drain in colander. Run cold water over pasta to chill.

In a large bowl combine pasta, onion, cheddar cheese, and broccoli. Pour desired amount of dressing over and toss well. Serve cold.

The sauce or dressing mixture is usually a 2:1 ratio of mayonnaise and sugar. Add as much as you desire to the pasta salad to moisten.
