This recipe has been in my recipe box for a long time. Decided to give it a try. The guys liked it better than I did. It is definitely a much heartier macaroni salad than most. It was creamy the first night I made it, but as with most pasta, it soaked up a lot of the dressing and I had to add a little more the following day. All-in-all a good recipe that would go over well at a get together.

I made this as a quick dinner for the kids. I used garlic dills instead of sweet, a red pepper instead of green and Hellman's mayonnaise instead of Miracle Whip--that's really just a personal family preferance, not a reflection on the recipe. Though I did not try this myself, the kids LOVED this salad. They thought that using american cheese and bologna in a cold salad was the best idea ever. My son said it's like eating the best parts of the bologna salad mixed up with pasta. Winner, winner.........pasta dinner!
