My kids really like this salad. I do add a little finely chopped red onion, and if the shredded cheddar cheese is on sale I do use that, (not a big deal to swap out for the cubed cheese) and sometimes to save time I also use a bottled salad dressing. My youngest daughter really likes this with bacon ranch salad dressing!!!

This was a good salad, although on the dry side. There's really not much to the dressing. I could see the benefit of using a bottled salad dressing (I like the idea of the bacon ranch!). We did enjoy it and it's very light.

This is a great basic pasta salad! Although, I did omit the oil and lemon juice. I also did not add salt as there would be plenty of salt from the ham. Other than that, it was delicious!

I used macaroni, 2 tbs. ranch dressing, and equal parts olive oil mayo and reduced fat sour cream and omitted the oil for the sauce base for this recipe. I did NOT add SALT because the HAM has plenty. I substituted white pepper and a dash of cayenne for the black pepper. YUM! It's dishes like this that I end up eating most of and NOT taking for a pot luck.

Everyone in my family enjoyed this recipe. The second time I made it with ring pasta, and we liked that even better than the shells. I used shredded cheese for the convenience.

This was a nice base. I didn't have any peas so I used green onions for color and added chopped hard boiled egg.I didn't measure any ingredients but I know I used a ton more mayo than called for.
