My whole family loved this recipe! Succulent flavor! I used bowtie pasta because I didn't have any elbow pasta on hand. The salad was pretty with it, and because the pasta texture was softer, it worked well. I only put in 1/2 of the milk; do that too, and add more later if you need to, or else you might find the salad too watery. I made my own honey mustard by combining 1/3 mayo, 1/3 honey, and 1/3 brown mustard (like Grey Poupon)--just eyeball it in the 1/3 measuring cup if you are making the full 12 serving recipe. That means you will need to add more mayo because the recipe calls for it as well. My husband said I should have added more peas, but I told him there weren't any in it (we realized that he thought the green pepper was peas--haha). So I added some peas (frozen and thawed) to the leftovers and it was even better! I think salad shrimp would also be a nice addition, and then the salad (maybe with bread) could be a meal on it's own.
