Thanks for your comment. Don't forget to share!

...also use a few shakes of garlic powder or granulated instead of raw garlic. Sprinkle some finely shredded cheddar or Mexican/Taco mix cheese on top before serving. ...and if you're in a real hurry, substitute about 2 cups, or more, of drained, fresh made, "store bought" Pico de Gallo (in produce section) for tomatoes, onions, jalapenos, and cilantro.

add some chopped jalapenos and cilantro!

I love jalapeno in my macaroni salad! The pasta and creamy mayo cut the heat and leave all the flavor. This looks like a great variation on macaroni salad. Penne is one of my favorite pasta shapes. It holds up well and looks more elegant than elbows. Elbows have been overused with processed cheese. lol
