(by Shirley McNevich)

1lb. small shell pasta1/2 cup finely chopped celery (including some of the yellow leaves)
1/2 cup grated carrots
1/4 cup finely chopped onions (optional)
1/4 cup chopped green bell peppers
6 hard boiled eggs
2 cups Miracle Whip salad dressing
1/4 cup cider vinegar
3/4 cup white sugar
2 TBSP French's yellow mustard
paprika for sprinkling

Cook and drain pasta shells according to box directions--do NOT rinse. In a bowl add Miracle Whip, cider vinegar, white sugar and mustard--stir well. Peel and chop 5 of the hard boiled eggs. To the Miracle Whip mixture add chopped celery, grated carrots, chopped onions, chopped green bell peppers and chopped eggs--stir well. Add drained pasta shells--stir carefully to mix. Taste--if too sweet add more mustard or cider vinegar and stir again. If too sour, add a little more white sugar and stir again. Peel the last hard boiled egg, slice the egg and arrange the slices over the top. Sprinkle paprika over the egg slices. Cover and refrigerate overnight.
