“Wacky Mac” Easy RVers Recipe


Yummy and easy to make

Final Wacky Mac Production


Here’s a great fun and easy summer meal to make in the RV. No oven needed! I found a pasta product in the store called Wacky Mac and it looked like it would be fun and colorful. If ever there was something up my alley….hmmm. By the way, the dressing part of this mixture makes a really good salad dressing, too. Some salad dressing variations would be to try to use a different vinegar, herb, add garlic or add a splash of pepper sauce to the vinegar mixture. We are hooked on this and it is low calorie and cheap to make. Send me your most fun recipe for keeping the RV cool.  

For 2 servings  

4 oz dry Wacky Mac  

3 oz lean cooked ham, cubed  

½ cup frozen peas  

1 Tbsp each; chopped onion, green pepper, red pepper, carrot and celery  

About 1/3 cup Vinegar dressing  


¼ cup white wine vinegar or golden balsamic  

Splash of white wine (optional)  

Splash of orange juice, about 1 Tbsp  

Splash of water 1 or 2 Tbsp  

Squeeze of lemon juice, about ½ Tbsp  

3 or 4 packets of stevia to taste  

1 tsp dill  

1 tsp Dijon mustard  

Dash of salt and pepper  

Cook and drain 4 oz Wacky Mac or other pasta favorite by package directions. The last minute, throw in the peas. Drain the pasta and pea mixture well. Add the rest of the chopped ingredients and pour vinegar dressing over all. Stir and refrigerate.  

We love this one! Hope you do, too. Please send me your favorite recipes for easy, light and cool RV meals. Check out the “how to” video on Wacky Mac!

    Great quick meal to make while on the road. We may try it with chicken as well as ham. We’ll be checking in to see what other quick and healthy recipes are posted.

  4. It looks light too. It’s great to cook in your RV because you can have some control over what you’re eating!
