Spicy Kielbasa Pasta Salad

I wanted a nice chilled pasta salad for a warm evening meal. I had some Kielbasa to use so I looked
around and found an awesome recipe from Sweet Baby Ray's website. I did not have all the ingredients but I was able to come up with a great sauce of my own!

16 oz salad macaroni, drained and rinsed in cold water to cool

16 oz kielbasa, diced

1 red bell pepper, seeded and diced
4 ribs celery, diced
1 small bunch green onions, chopped (greens and whites)

1/3 cup mayo
1/3 cup non-fat greek yogurt
1/3 cup yellow mustard
1/3 cup Louisiana hot sauce
1/4 cup butter, melted
1/4 cup flat beer
1/4 cup apple cider vinegar
3 TB brown sugar
1 TB molasses
1 TB white vinegar
2 tsp liquid smoke
1 tsp garlic powder
1 tsp chili powder
1 tsp worcestshire sauce

salt , pepper and extra cayenne pepper to taste

Combine all sauce ingredients and allow to mingle for 15 minutes.

In a pan over medium heat brown the kielbasa, drain if you like but you can keep some of the drippings if you like

In a very large bowl combine the cooked pasta, kielbasa and veggies.

Gently pour over the sauce and toss to combine (you don't have to use the entire thing, add as much as you like to your preference)

Chill for at least 1 hour and serve cold.
