Today I made pasta salad for a potluck at church. The recipe is below. Unbelabley I did end up following the recipe as was. (ok so it is my own recipe so maybe that's why I followed it. Sorry no picture I forgot to take one before I left for the potluck and now it's gone.
1 ½ pound shrimp, peel
1 (16 ounces) package noodle shells (#27)
1 (12 ounces) package imitation crab meat, cubed
½ cup chives, finely chopped
1 cup mayonnaise (For some reason it sometimes need more than 1 cup)
1 cup frozen peas (optional)
black pepper to taste
Season shrimp and cook (without adding water) over medium heat 3 to 5 minutes. Be careful not to over cook shrimp; drain and cool. Prepare noodles according to package directions; drain and rinse. When shrimp and noodles are cooled combine all ingredients in a salad bowl; mix well. Refrigerate and allow to chill thoroughly before serving.
