Deviled Egg Pasta

           We all come to one of those days when you are asked to bring a pasta salad to a get together, but you want to be different and not bring the same salad that is brought by everyone else. This Deviled Egg Pasta is the perfect one to bring. This dish is a perfect meal in itself and also makes a great side dish.

            To make this great dish, I have borrowed the steps from both, deviled eggs and a great pasta salad. By this I mean, you will use the boiled eggs, you will separate the yolks and the whites. However, you will chop the whites up and add it to cooked pasta.

The yolks will be placed into a bowl then mixed with mayonnaise. Yes, similar to making deviled eggs. There will be more mayonnaise along with some other liquid type ingredients that when combined create a deliciously addicting combination.

            Do not be afraid to add in other things to the salad. Think of it as an experiment of sorts. However, keep the additions somewhat basic. Adding  cooked and chopped bacon is not over doing things. If you choose to add an Andouille Sausage, this may throw off the combination of flavors together.

Do you see what I am saying?  You are making a deviled Salad, but you want it to be flavors that combine real well together, not throw each other off and leave the guests wondering what it was they just tasted.

Frequently Asked Questions:

Why is it called Deviled Pasta?

Deviling means to add heat or spice to a dish. Such as adding cayenne pepper to the yolks and mayonnaise for the eggs. With this dish, I also add white pepper to the mayonnaise. This gives it just a little bite.

What type of pasta should I use?

I always, and I mean always use elbow macaroni. It sucks in just enough of the creaminess into the ends of the pasta to make it perfect.

Can I add other ingredients?

Of course! Some of my go-to ingredients are chopped bacon, tuna, pickle relish, red onions and celery. There is no right or wrong way to make a dish. You make that dish YOU!
