  • Step 1
    Boil your pasta according to package instructions. You want the pasta to be al dente so it's not overcooked.

    In a medium bowl, mix up your Hidden Valley® Original Ranch® Seasoning, Salad Dressing & Recipe Mix Packet 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.
  • Step 7
    Chill or serve right away.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Yummy! I usually make a boxed version of this but decided to make it from scratch using this recipe. Wow, was it good! Much better. I made it for a birthday buffet and everyone loved it! Its also easy to make and comes together pretty quickly. Would be great for a summer picnic.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from BACON RANCH PASTA SALAD This Ranch pasta salad recipe was great! I added 1/2 a cucumber and Green pepper and red onion! Tweaked a little more powered ranch and mayo because I made a little extra pasta! Used medium shells instead! Also added more cheddar cheese and didn't put the parmesan cheese! It was great for our Frisay night church group! They all wanted the recipe! Garnished with some Bacon Crumbles and grated cheddar cheese! Will make this again!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easily adaptable I made this tonight for a get together. I didn't have all the ingredients and it still turned out very tasty! I doubled the recipe, but used less milk (~ 1/3 to 1/2 cup, I didn't measure) to create a thicker sauce.
