Peas and Pasta Salad

Pea and Pasta Salad
I love pea salad.  Take me to a salad bar and if there is pea salad or beets I go there first.  Yummmo.  It goes with my big love affair of all salads I suppose.  This one is a really simple one found and adapted from the Lazarus restaurants cookbook.

8 Oz. shells or other pasta
2 C. diced celery
1/2 C. pimento drained
2 boxes frozen peas
1 C. Hellmann's Mayonnaise
1 t. sugar
pepper to taste
salt to taste

Add pasta to boiling salted water and cook to al dente.  Pour the frozen peas into the colander and drain the pasta over the peas to thaw.  Cool.  Blend all ingredients together.  If the mixture is too dry add a few drops of sweet pickle juice to desired consistency.  Cover and refrigerate until serving tome.
