Bacon Cheddar Ranch Pasta Salad

Who doesn’t love a good pasta salad? I rarely make one because I honestly don’t think about it until it’s time to eat and by then it’s too late to make one.

Today I decided dinner would be sandwhiches and what goes better with a good sandwich than a good pasta salad? Since I had decided on dinner just after eating lunch, I had time to prep. I didn’t have a good recipe so I went on pinterest and found close to what I was wanting. Here is what I ended up with:

Bacon Cheddar Ranch Pasta Salad


1/2 box of pasta, cooked al dente and drained
6 slices of thick cut bacon, cooked and chopped
2/3 c. Frozen peas (because I guess you technically need a veggie)
1/2 block cheddar cheese,  thickly grated
1/2 c. Mayonnaise
1/2c. Sour Cream
1 T. Dried Parsley
1 T. Dill Weed
1 t. Dry mined onion
1 t. Garlic Powder
1 t. Onion Powder
1/2 t. Black Pepper
1/4 t. Salt

Mix mayonnaise, sour cream and spices for dressing.  Set aside to let the flavors set up.

Mix pasta, bacon, peas, cheese and dressing. Refrigerate until ready to serve.
