Shrimp and Pasta Salad

2 Cans of Tiny Shrimp and the juice (do not drain)
2 heaping teaspoons of Old Bay Seasoning
1 Pint jar of Mayonnaise( Duke's, or Kraft)
1 Chopped fresh tomato
Carrot Curls for Garnish
1 Box of cooked Elbow Macaroni or small shells

Prepare Pasta as directed on box. When done drain.
In a large mixing bowl put shrimp and Old Bay, let sit while pasta is cooking.
When Pasta is done, put it in the bowl with the Old Bay and Shrimp. Stir just enough to coat the pasta, then add the chopped tomato. Then it is time to add the mayonnaise, mix well and put in your serving bowl. Chill 4 hours or overnight. Before serving, mix one more time because sometimes if the pasta was warm, the mayo sinks to the bottom. Then garnish with the carrot curls and sprinkle with a little Old Bay.

This is a family favorite. Great for cook outs in the summer, or take it to some one's house for a pot-luck covered dish meal. Everyone goes for seconds!
