I will never buy store bought again. Made for reunion, everyone raved wanting recipe. Made again. My only change was to add more mayo for creaminess, and more salt to liking.

Family loved it was a giant hit, can't wait to have it again. Was a great new twist for a pasta salad.

I love this recipe. I used Tree colored pasta. Also no bacon used one small can of sliced Black olives. It gave it a meaty taste without all that bacon I am trying to watch my sodium intake. Yum. I love the fact you use a lot less mayonnaise than the traditional macaroni salad recipes

for those of you who have made this:do the salt&pepper amounts taste right to you? doesn't seem like enough of either even though bacon is salty

I made this tonight for Sunday dinner. I made it according to the recipe and added a bit of garlic powder. It was delicious! Everyone loved it so it'll be one of my favorite recipes for mac salad. ?? ??
