Rotini Salad Alfredo

A Leftover Easter Egg & Pasta Salad—on Easter!

What do you do with Easter's leftover hard-cooked eggs—besides make traditional egg salad? This tangy recipe serves 12 and uses 10 to 12 eggs. Hold your Easter egg hunt early, then let the kids crack and peel the eggs for you. Make the salad in advance, chill, then add the eggs into the salad right before serving.

Tip: As a matter of food safety, don't let the hard-cooked eggs sit unrefrigerated for more than 2 hours.
