"Am always looking for macaroni saads which are low carb. content since I have Type I diabetes. It's very difficult to find such recipes that are appealing. This one in particular is very carb. friendly, one which I'll turn to often."

"This is usually made in a double batch. It's even tastier a few days later. I add multi colored sweet peppers (red, Orange and Yellow) . Always delicious and creamy!!"

"Absolutely delicious. I have made this wonderful salad for years and it's always a hit! I always add extra sour cream to keep it moist. My picky little son always asks for a second helping."

"Extremely soupy when I first made it, but the pasta really absorbed the liquid once refrigerated (overnight in my case)."

"Made this for 4th of July event and the bowl was empty! I skipped the pimentos simply because I didn't have any on hand. It was excellent and I'm making more today for more dinner guests."
