  • 1 box (12 oz.) elbow macaroni or any pasta cut
  • 1 packet Hidden Valley® Original Ranch® Salad Dressing & Seasoning Mix
  • ½ cup mayonnaise
  • ½ cup sour cream
  • ½ cup milk
  • ½ teaspoon garlic powder

  • 2 small cans sliced olives (or one large one)
  • ½ cup grated Parmesan cheese

  1. 1. Boil your pasta according to package instructions. You want the pasta to be al dente so it's not overcooked.
  2. 2. While your pasta is boiling, gather all your other ingredients.

  4. 4. Place all other ingredients in a large bowl.
  5. 5. Once your pasta is finished, rinse under a cool stream of water until all the pasta is cool.
  6. 6. Place the pasta in with the other ingredients, add the dressing and toss until well-coated.
  7. 7. Chill or serve right away.
