Emeril's Macaroni Salad

Happy Labor Day everyone! As I sit here trying to mentally psych myself up to return to work tomorrow (only for 18 school days though!), I of course have to share with you the pasta salad I made to bring to my parents' today.

I was looking for something a little different, and when I saw this had goat cheese as well as prosciutto and olives in it, I knew it had to be a good flavor combination. I actually added 8 more ounces of pasta than the recipe called for since I was bringing it for a crowd; but didn't increase the other ingredients, so it looks a little sparse. If you make it according to the recipe, it will be chock full of good stuff.

The dressing had a nice flavor with the hint of Dijon mustard, and went nicely with all add-ins. The only other change I made was to use grape tomatoes instead of a whole one, so I will just link you right to the recipe. Hope everyone has a great day at work tomorrow!
