Bacon Ranch Pasta Salad

When I use bacon bits (as compared to real crumbled cooked bacon) I think this salad tastes just like the store bought, boxed version. That is a good thing though, as our family loves the store bought version too! To give it a fresher taste I like to use the crumbled 'real' bacon or the Hormel 'real' bacon pieces that you can buy in a bag.


Bacon Ranch Pasta Salad

1 sm. box of shell pasta
1 pkg. of Ranch Dressing Mix
1/2 c. Mayonnaise
3-4 T. bacon bits
1/2 c. peas
1/2 c. shredded carrots


Cook your pasta until almost done and add shredded carrots. When pasta and carrots are done rinse under cold water. Place in bowl. Add peas. In a smaller bowl mix together ranch dressing mix, mayonnaise and bacon bits. Add to pasta mixture. Mix well. Refrigerate and keep cool until ready to serve.Print Friendly and PDF
