7. Ziti is a type of pasta. Little tubes.
So, baked ziti is like a lasagna, but with tube pasta and meatballs instead of sheet pasta and meat sauce.

9. Are you kidding? Baked ziti is yummy goodness!
Think lasagna with tube noodles instead of flat noodles.

11. I make a mean cold seafood pasta salad.
I could bring along all of Micheal Moore's tv series The Awful Truth on DVD so we could watch it.

24. OK, but be forewarned.
I can't cook for less than a 1000 people. So this salad will go a long way.

1 box pasta (I prefer tri-colored rotinis or mini-shells)
Cook as required, drain, and chill in fridge.

1 yellow sweet pepper
1 red sweet pepper
1 orange sweet pepper
1 can black olives
1 jar green olives with pimentos
how ever many fresh peas you can stand to shuck
3 stalks celery
2 small-to-medium red onion
4 or 5 sweet pickles (I like those mini-gerkins)
1 lb of medium-sized shrimp
half or a whole clove of garlic

Hellman's mayo
Tarragon vinegar
pepper

Chop everything up however you want. (I like chunky salads, so I leave the olives whole, for instance, but to each their own.)

Get your chilled pasta out, time to add the igedients! I don't like mayo, so go easy on the mayo--maybe only two or three soup spoonfuls at the most. Add the tarraagon vinegar. (The end texture should be a light, almost vinegrette dressing.) Pepper to taste. Mix into the pasta thoroughly. Add the veggies and shrimp and again mix together well.

Chill the whole dish for at least two hours. The longer you chill this up to 24-hours the better the separate ingredients will blend together.

NOTES:

VINEGAR WARNING: the vinegar taste will increase over time, so go light. Taste it every hour or two that it chills to see if you need to add more, and then only a wee bit at a time.

I used the celery as the salt source. You may want to add more salt to taste.

I came up with this recipe when I remembered I had to bring something to a pot luck but didn't have any money for groceries. Panicked, I basically emptied my fridge and cupboards for anything I could find. I'm sure that first dish used canned tuna instead of shrimp, and it didn't have any peppers in it. And everyone raved about it. 20 years later, what I've written here is my favorite version. But feel free to substitute ingredients freely!
