Okay the little lady said I spend too much time on this site anymore :lol: so she insisted that while she don't smoke meat or anything, she can make plenty of side dishes to go well with it....and this pasta salad she made up is KILLER stuff.....huge hit with everyone and she is willing to share (unlike me and my jerky recipe :twisted: ) 1 pound bag Mini Shells Pasta, uncooked 1 cup mayonnaise 1/2 cup sour cream 2 packages Italian dressing mix 2 cans sliced pitted ripe black olives 2 bunches green onions, sliced Half of each: red, orange & yellow bell pepper, diced Â¾ cup shredded parmesan cheese Directions: Cook mini shell pasta according to package directions; drain. First: In a small bowl, blend mayonnaise, sour cream & Italian dressing mix; then place in fridge to cool. Then in a large bowl, combine macaroni, olives, green onions, all three bell peppers & shredded parmesan cheese. Add the mayonnaise mixture to the large bowl once cooled; toss gently.
