Tips for Making Pasta Salad
Don’t over cook the pasta. It is important to not over cook the pasta. Cook just until al dente and then drain them and then cool the pasta while in the strainer with cold water until all of the pasta is cooled. This will prevent a soggy pasta salad.
Cool the pasta completely. Just like over cooking pasta will give you a mushy pasta salad, so will noodles that are not cooled all the way. As soon as they are done cooking you want to shock the pasta with cold water to stop the cooking process.
Let pasta salad sit before serving. You can serve this pasta salad immediately after making it however I find pasta salad is best when it has time to sit in the fridge and all of the flavors are able to mix together. Letting the pasta salad sit for a few hours before serving results in a more flavorful and delicious Italian pasta salad!

The main ingredient for this easy tuna macaroni salad is pasta and a shortcut of pasta like fusilli, penne, bow tie, elbow macaroni, or farfalle works best. You can use any type of pasta including whole wheat pasta, chickpea pasta, or any other legume-based pasta you like.

How to Make Egg Salad Pasta Salad
In a large pot boil water and cook elbow noodles according to package.
While the elbow noodles are cooking deshell the hardboiled eggs. Cut each egg in half and put the yokes in a large sized bowl.
Using a fork mash the egg yokes and set aside. Then chop the egg whites in to small pieces. Add the egg whites to the the mashed egg yokes.
Next dice your onion into small pieces. I hate cutting onions so I like to use an onion chopper.
Add the mayo, onions, paprika, salt and pepper to the egg and egg yoke mixture and mix well.
At this time the noodles should be about done cooking. When the noodles are done cooking, drain the noodles with a colander. Leave the noodles in a colander and rinse with cold water to cool them to room temperature or colder.
Once the noodles are cooled a bit, let them drain and then add them to the egg mixture and mix well. Be sure to coat all of the noodles.
You can serve immediately if desired, however I prefer to put the egg salad pasta salad in the fridge for 30 minutes to an hour to chill.
