Directions:
Directions:
Bring a large pot of lightly salted water to a boil. Add macaroni and cook until tender, about 8 minutes. Rinse under cold water and drain.

In a large bowl, stir together carrots, red onion, green pepper, red pepper and celery. Mix in the mayonnaise, condensed milk, sugar, vinegar, salt and pepper. Add the macaroni; toss gently. Cover and refrigerate for at least 8 hours. I usually make this ahead of time and stir it occasionally to blend the flavors. The macaroni will absorb some of the liquid.
