Ranch Pasta Salad

When time is limited this is a quick and easy recipe to put together.  You can use any pasta or vegetables you would like.

Ranch Pasta Salad

  • 3 cups uncooked tricolor spiral pasta
  • broccoli florets, chopped
  • red onion, sliced and chopped
  • tomato, peeled, seeded and chopped or use cherry tomatoes, halved
  • 1 (8 oz.) bottle of ranch salad dressing (more as needed) (see below for a different dressing)
  • 1/2 cup parmesan, shredded (or more)
  • optional – add some bacon, cooked and crumbled

Cook pasta according to package directions, drain and rinse.  Combine the pasta with the prepared vegetables; drizzle with salad dressing and sprinkle with cheese; mix well.

Ranch Dressing:

This dressing is a little different but very good – I actually think this tastes better.

  • 1/2 cup mayonnaise
  • 1/4 cup Caesar salad dressing
  • 1/4 cup Ranch salad dressing
  • 3 tbsp. sour cream
  • 1 tbsp. dijon

Combine above ingredients and use instead of just the Ranch salad dressing.

  1. I was doing so much cooking a few weeks ago I needed some very simple and quick dishes to feed 10 people for the weekend. Everyone always likes Ranch dressing… I did not use low-fat but I am sure you could.
