  9. 2 stalks celery, chopped
  10. 1 green bell pepper, seeded and chopped
  11. 1/4 cup grated carrot (optional)
  12. 2 tablespoons chopped pimento peppers
  1. Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil. Add the macaroni and cook until just tender, about 8 minutes. Rinse under cold water and drain.
