Layered Pasta Salad

A few weeks ago my sister and I co-hosted a Thirty-One party at our mom's house. We were very excited for a reason to plan a get together and put some Pinterest ideas to good use.

I chose two "pretty" Pinterest recipes that would serve as table decor and food. The recipe for the Layered Pasta Salad is below and the Puff Pastry Sandwiches are here.

Layered Pasta Salad

What you Need:
3 cups shredded lettuce
Start by adding the shredded lettuce in a glass serving bowl or trifle bowl.
In a small bowl, combine mayonnaise, sour cream, and Dijon mustard.
Cover and refrigerate for several hours or overnight.

1 1/2 cups uncooked small shell macaroni
1 Tbsp canola oil
1/4 tsp salt
1/8 tsp pepper
1 cup chopped, fully cooked, ham
1 cup chopped hard salami
1 bag of frozen peas, thawed
1 cup mayonnaise
1/4 cup sour cream
2 tsp Dijon mustard, or spicy brown mustard
1 cup (4 oz) shredded Colby Jack cheese

Cook the macaroni according to package directions. Drain and rinse the pasta with cold water. Drizzle with oil, and toss to coat the noodles so they don't stick together.

Add the macaroni on top of the lettuce.
Layer in the chopped ham, chopped salami, and thawed peas.

Spread mayonnaise mixture over the peas.

Just before serving, sprinkle cheese on the top layer.
