Party Pasta (as we call it)

This 'party pasta' or Ham & cheese pasta are always present during our special gatherings...
 the obvious, it's freaking delicious! Also its a perfect make ahead meal.

Always a crowd pleaser!

I usually prep the day before, cook the pasta, cool & store in ziplock bags. Chop cheese, ham & store in a separate ziplock. Cook veggies & store!
Party day arrives & you toss everything in a large bowl add condiments & mix.

  2lb Spiral Pasta
1lb Yellow cheese
1lbs Ham
1/2 frozen mixed veggies
1 cup Mayo
1 cup sour cream
1 TP Mustard

Cook pasta accordingly & remember DO NOT overcook.
 Add mixed veggies during the last 2 minutes.

Cube cheese & ham.. if prepping the day before store in ziplock bags.

Once pasta cools, store in the refrigerator.
Day of: In a large bowl combine all ingredients & mix to incorporate mayo mixture.
Pasta should look saturated with mayo mixture because it will absorb half.


Always remember the rules of cold pasta, don't put out to early on or place in the sun. 
Once pasta is no longer cool, store away (if for some odd reason there's leftovers)!
Double or triple the recipe. I've made up to 4 boxes of pasta for parties :)
