The hard boiled eggs used in this quick pasta recipes idea gives the salad a bit of protein and texture to enjoy. Lately, there seems to be a lot of questions as to which eggs are best to buy. Whenever possible it's a good idea to try and buy eggs that come from happy chickens. That means if possible always purchase eggs that are free range or cage free. The U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) requires that when eggs are labeled free range that the egg producers be able to demonstrate that the egg layers have access to the outdoors. While this doesn't necessarily mean the hen has a lot of time, outdoors it is a step in the right direction. Many egg producers label their eggs as cage-free in addition to, or instead of, free-range meaning they are not raised in restrictive cages and have better quality of life. Buying cage-free eggs is a good start into giving animals a better life, and you can feel good about that when you enjoy the eggs you've bought.
The paprika in this macaroni salad recipe, adds both flavour and color to this delicious recipe idea, you can use sweet paprika or smoked paprika whichever you prefer. To make sweet paprika, peppers are smoked and then dried to produce a distinctive sweet and smoky flavour. You can sprinkle paprika on chicken, fish, pork, potatoes, and rice for vibrant color and taste. You can also sprinkle or rub paprika over chicken or fish before cooking. Paprika can be added in small amounts to soups, stews, and sauces. For a deep, smoky paprika flavour sprinkle on deviled eggs and spiced nuts.
