I have chosen a pasta specialty called “cellentani” (I don’t do this often), but other short pasta go equally well. You might like short rigatoni, trofie or typical penne which are prefect.

Now you have all the freedom to tweak with mayonnaise if you like. But, if I was you I wouldn’t make it too heavy and overwhelm the delicate taste. Instead of pasta salads, mayonnaise is better for potato salads.
