Bacon Ranch Pasta Salad

In Idaho right now the temperature is close to reaching 100 degrees. I know when it starts getting that hot I want something cool, tasty, quick to make and has bacon. This bacon ranch pasta salad is so good that you will absolutely come back for seconds. I mean it has bacon right?

This pasta salad is so flavorful using Life44 ranch seasoning. I am so happy that we have a dry ranch seasoning where I can actually pronounce all the ingredients. Add some bacon, cheese, olives, peas, mayo (Dukes is my favorite), and pasta and you have a great side dish or even main dish.

Use this Bacon Ranch Pasta Salad with a tasty cheeseburger, a grilled chicken breast or a perfectly medium rare rib eye. The choice is yours and you really can’t go wrong with any choice. I hope you enjoy this recipe and please make sure you let us know how it turns out. Send me your feedback.

 

The pasta may absorb some of the ranch mayo (it will) so you may want to add a little more mayo to make it a bit creamier and that is it. It is so simple to make this side dish for those hot summer days.
