This is the pasta salad recipe I used for the wedding. This is what I grew up with my mom making. One thing to note is that you want the noodles to be cool before adding the dressing. If they are warm, it seems to suck up more of the dressing, and your salad will be a little dry. It also tastes better if it’s sits overnight.
Pasta Salad for a Crowd
8 14-16 oz boxes dried pasta (I used rotini)
3 quarts Miracle whip
1 small jar pickle relish
6 eggs, boiled, peeled and diced or smashed
1/4 cup diced onion
3 tablespoons yellow mustard
Cook pasta in large pot until tender. Drain, running cool water over it at the same time. Set aside.
In a large bowl, combine miracle whip, onions, pickle relish, eggs, and mustard. Mix with cooled pasta. Refrigerate overnight for best results. Mix well before serving.
