  • Cook shell macaroni according to package directions. Drain and rinse with cold water. Drizzle with oil, and toss to coat.
  • Place shredded lettuce in a 2/12 quart glass serving bowl or trifle bowl.
  • Top lettuce with macaroni, being careful to layer the macaroni evenly over the lettuce for a pretty layered look. Add sliced eggs for the following layer.
  • Sprinkle eggs and macaroni with salt and pepper. Add chopped ham, then chopped salami, and then the thawed peas.
  • In a small bowl, combine mayonnaise, sour cream, green onions and Dijon mustard. Spread this mixture over the peas.
  • Cover and refrigerate for several hours or overnight.
  • Just before serving, sprinkle with cheese and garnish with parsley.
