Such a great idea to add ham. It sure amped up my regular mac salad and I’ll be making yours from now on. I did add some smoked paprika and a pinch of sugar because I use those in my mac salads. If you have an Instant Pot you can cook the pasta and hard boiled eggs. Thanks for your recipe, Zona!

Hi Ryan, I'm so glad you enjoyed it. I imagine the smoked paprika and sugar are awesome additions. I do have an instant pot so I will try your cooking method next time I make this. Thank you!
