The first time I made it with Miracle Whip, which made it far too zesty. I added some cheddar cheese and Ranch dressing to tone it down. Did not have green pepper, but added frozen peas (rinsed in a colander to thaw). After 6 hours in the fridge, the flavor had mellowed and everybody loved it.
The second time I followed the recipe, including using regular mayonnaise. I liked the Ranch dressing and cheddar cheese, so I added them again. Also diced some ham and tossed that in.
Made it a couple more times and followed the recipe exactly. Making it again today, but with a bit less mustard and sugar, as that is what I prefer.
This is a great recipe that can be easily tweaked according to your tastes and what you have on hand. For best flavor and consistency, be sure to 1) let the sauce-veggie mix "mellow" in the fridge for at least a couple of hours and 2) not mix the sauce into the pasta until an hour or so before serving.
