salad #8

Tangy Pasta Salad

16 oz of noodles {smaller but a bitt wider noodles is what we use.  Spirals would work great too}
8 oz of bacon
3 sliced carrots (or bag of slivered carrots)
1 finely chopped green pepper {I used about half}
1 finely chopped onion {I used about a 1/4}
1 1/4 cup miracle whip
1/2 tsp garlic salt or ground garlic
1/3 cup sugar
cheese to top salad.

Cook noodles and place in a large bowl.

Cook bacon.  Let cool and crumble. 

Add carrots, green pepper, onion, and bacon  to pasta.  Stir everything together.

In a seperat bowl mix together the mircle whip, garlic and white sugar. Then mix this into the pasta.

You then can top the sald with cheese or eat it straight.

You can eat it right away, but it tastes better if it is cool.  I also thought this recipe would taste great with shrimp or maybe crawfish or even lobster. 

Have a great and blessed day.
