The Best Macaroni Salad I've Ever Had

My husband and I like to watch all the cooking shows on Food Network and the Cooking Channel. We were watching Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives when Guy Fieri visited The Shed in Ocean Springs, MD. They demonstrated how to make Mama Mia's Macaroni Salad. It looked delicious!

After a short search on Google, I found this recipe. I've adapted it a little to suit our taste. If you're looking for something to take to your next get-together, try this. It's yummy.

This recipe makes enough to feed about 8 or so people. I always make it and keep it in the fridge and we snack on it during the week. You could easily halve this recipe if you wanted to.

Mama Mia's Macaroni Salad - Fort Worth Mama's version

4 cups uncooked shell pasta
2 cups mayonnaise
1 cup sour cream
1/4 cup cider vinegar
1/4 cup sugar
1 teaspoon pepper
2 teaspoon onion powder
1 1/2 teaspoon salt (more or less)
2 teaspoon garlic salt
2 Tablespoons Dijon mustard
1 bell pepper chopped
1 onion chopped
1 cup shredded cheddar cheese

Boil pasta in salted water according to package directions. Drain pasta - set aside to cool to room temperature.
Mix together all of the ingredients except bell pepper, onion and cheese.
Mix sauce with the pasta.
Add in chopped bell pepper, onion and cheddar cheese.

What are some things you like to make to take to get-togethers?
