  • “This was really easy and tasty. I used some leftover shredded chicken and small shell pasta with a mixture of mustards. The dressing was pretty sweet but nice. Thanks for the recipe!”

  • “can I used sour cream and mustard mix with parcel, honey, powder garlic . no cheese”

  • “I used elbow macaroni as that’s what I had and a grain mustard.I left out the tomatoes as I had none on hand.I have to say I really didn’t care for this – not sure why.”

  • “This pasta salad was very easy and very good.I used it as a side dish with Pecan Garlic Sausage (Holmes, a product of Texas) leaving out the ham/chicken.I doubled the recipe using “Beer Brat Mustard”.I did not have any honey, but used Molasses instead and the “Honey Mustard” dressing was excellent.I will definitely be having this again.Thanks Bill for being the creative cook sportsman that you are.”

  • “Fantastic! Heavenly! I was looking for a warm pasta salad to serve with grilled fish. This fit the bill perfectly and it was so fast and easy! On this occasion I left out the chicken/ham and just added lightly steamed broccoli but I will definately make this again with chicken. I also tripled the quantity and this was ample for four servings as a side dish. Really yummy, thanks Bill! Oh and I forgot the vinegar, but it didn’t seem to matter, and I used a seeded mustard.”
