This is a refreshing and fulfilling pasta salad that has enough protein to be eaten alone as a small meal. The ingredients are more unique and sometimes healthier than many other macaroni salad dishes out there. This was created in my own kitchen recently, enjoy!

This was really good! I did have to add a little more mayo (the warm pasta soaked it up), and omitted the hardboiled eggs (my husband doesn't like them) and the green onions. I added 1/4 tsp garlic powder as well after taste testing. I also added 3 stalks diced celery. This was a great lunch! (I didn't use quite as much edamame as called for, because I had to shell mine and it was a pain, it was a great addition though!)

My son thought it had a delicious flavor and he is hard to please. This was our first time trying edamame and it is surprisingly good. Thanks for a great recipe.
