    In a medium bowl, mix up your Hidden Valley® Original Ranch® Salad Dressing & Seasoning Mix with the mayo, sour cream, milk and garlic powder and set aside.
  • Step 4
    Place all other ingredients in a large bowl.
  • Step 5
    Once your pasta is finished, rinse under a cool stream of water until all the pasta is cool.
  • Step 6
    Place the pasta in with the other ingredients, add the dressing and toss until well-coated.

    Chill or serve right away.
