What You'll Need:
  • 1 pound pasta (shells or twists)
  • 2 cups mayonnaise
  • 1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • 1/4 cup red wine vinegar
  • 1 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1 teaspoon dried thyme
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 6 hard-boiled eggs, peeled and chopped
  • 1 cup diced mozzarella cheese
  • 1 red bell pepper, coarsely chopped
  • 4 or 5 scallion, finely chopped
What To Do:
  1. In a large pot of boiling water, cook pasta until tender. 

  2. Meanwhile, in a large bowl, blend the mayonnaise, Parmesan cheese, vinegar, oregano, thyme, salt, pepper, and garlic powder. 

  3. Drain and rinse pasta and add to the mayonnaise mixture; mix well. 

  4. Add the chopped eggs, mozzarella cheese, red pepper, and scallions Mix just until combined. Serve immediately, or cover and chill for several hours or overnight to blend flavors.
