  • 1 lb. penne, rotini or elbow pasta
  • 2 cups mayo, full fat
  • 1 14 oz. can sweetened condensed milk
  • 1 cup apple cider vinegar (or white vinegar)
  • 2/3 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 large green bell pepper, diced
  • 1 small onion, finely diced
  • 3/4 cup shredded carrot


  • Cook pasta 1 minute less than package directions. While pasta is cooking, whisk together mayo, sweetened condensed milk, vinegar and sugar. Mix in diced bell pepper, onion and carrots.
  • Drain pasta and add to the bowl. Toss until well coated. Cover and refrigerate until ready to serve. It's even better if it's refrigerated overnight.
