pasta salad sandwich

pasta salad sandwich

I've been thinking about making this sandwich for a couple weeks, and this Sunday I did it. Macaroni pasta with cabbage, carrots, tomatoes, and "bac-un" bits, tossed with italian dressing, on a bun with fake cheese and real barbecue sauce. I figured keeping this sandwich structurally intact would be the main obstacle, so I got a big rounded Semifreddi's roll and hollowed out one side so the bread would hold everything in, like a salad hat.

Sweet and starchy.

  2. yeah it was pretty good! it had a nice soft pasta/crunchy veggie texture combination. i think if i made it again i'd use a creamier sauce - more like traditional macaroni salad. and no soy cheese - toffuti american "cheese" has the worst aftertaste, and this sandwich was already pretty starchy without it.

  3. That is crazy carb sandwich. Dr. Atkins would throttle me from beyond the grave if I ate that!
