Recipe: Bacon Ranch Pasta Salad

Hi everyone!  It is so good to be back to regular blogging.  I hope you enjoyed the Labor Day holiday here in the U.S.  Sadly, it marks the end of summer for most people. Before the summer gets away from us, I thought that I would share a quick and easy salad recipe.  Enjoy! 


Bacon Ranch Pasta Salad


1 (12 ounce) package uncooked macaroni shells

3 slices cooked bacon 

1 cup mayonnaise 

3 tablespoons dry ranch salad dressing mix 

1/4 teaspoon garlic powder 

1/2 teaspoon pepper 

1/2 cup milk, or as needed 

1 cup shredded sharp Cheddar cheese 


1. Bring a large pot of lightly salted water to a boil. Stir in pasta and cook for 10 to 12 minutes or until al dente; drain. 

2. Place bacon on a microwavable plate and cook about 5 minutes or until evenly brown. Drain and chop. 

3. In a large bowl, mix mayonnaise, ranch dressing mix, garlic powder, and garlic pepper. Stir in milk until smooth. Place bacon, peas and cheese in bowl and toss to coat with dressing. Cover and chill at least 1 hour in the refrigerator. Toss with additional milk if the salad seems a little dry.
