Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Overall! The Hidden Valley Ranch Dressing mix absolutely made this dish. It's like a secret ingredient that no one can identify. My only issue was the amount of pasta listed. It's about twice as much as is good for this recipe. The pasta overwhelmed the rest of the dish.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Quick in a pinch :-) I didn't have much in the fridge but I had a hungry family. I looked up "quick pasta dishes" and this came up. It was a success! Tasted great and it was easy to substitute some ingredients. Thank you. I will pass on this page and recommend it to all.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from I've been converted!!! I am usually not a creamy dressing lover, because I guess I never had one that went well with pretty much everything and that I could also cook with in more ways than I ever imagined. Maybe I can have some fun in the kitchen now and actually knock someone's socks off! Who's in? ;-)
