Cook macaroni in salted water according to directions on package (I added about 1/2 tbsp salt to the water).
In a medium mixing bowl stir together the rest of the ingredients and combine well.
Add the drained elbow pasta and fold in gently to mix with the vegetable mixture. Taste for salt & pepper and add more according to taste.
It is usually served along with Frijoles Puercos for some classic dishes like Tamales, Shredded beef and Barbacoa.
