Shrimp Pasta Salad

It's funny how the simplest dishes are often the most enjoyable.  As a child, I was always so excited to come home and find a big bowl of this shrimp pasta salad chilling in the refrigerator.  A couple decades later, it's my husband's number one most requested meal.

I'm not complaining.  :-)

From Mom
Serves 4

2 cups small pasta of your choice
3/4 pound shrimp, boiled
3 hard-boiled eggs, peeled and diced
1 medium tomato, chopped
3 green onions, finely sliced
1/2 cup shredded cheddar cheese
Mayonnaise to coat, about 3/4 cup

1.  Prepare pasta according to package directions, and drain well.  Place in a large bowl.  Add remaining ingredients and toss to coat.  Chill for at least one hour prior to serving.
Pin It!


  1. I love the colors! Such a fun twist on pasta salad.

  2. Sounds simple yet delicious! I rarely make pasta salad, not sure why, but now that the warm weather is coming around (here in DC) a cool pasta salad sounds perfect.
