Ham and Cheese Pasta Salad

When I make this pasta salad, I usually pair it with hot dogs, fried chicken, or sandwiches. I also make it whenever I have leftover ham. This is a recipe with ingredients that can be easily changed to suit your own taste.



Step: 1

Whisk mayonnaise, pickle relish, and milk in a bowl until combined; season with salt and black pepper. Chill in refrigerator while preparing remaining ingredients.

Step: 2

Bring a large pot of lightly salted water to a boil. Cook bow-tie pasta at a boil, stirring occasionally, until cooked through yet firm to the bite, about 12 minutes; drain and transfer to a large bowl.

Step: 3

Gently stir ham, Cheddar cheese, peas, onion, celery, and pimento into pasta. Pour mayonnaise mixture over pasta mixture and toss to evenly coat.

Step: 4

Cover the bowl with plastic wrap and refrigerate 4 hours to overnight.
