- Servings: 4 to 7
1 pound whole wheat pasta preferably corkscrew
10 ounces frozen peas thawed
2 large carrots peeled, coarsely grated
6 slices bacon crumbled, cooked until crisp
freshly ground black pepper to taste
Step 1Cook the pasta in boiling water as directed on box for al dente, about 8 minutes.
Step 2Drain and place the cooked pasta in a large bowl filled with ice water to stop the pasta from over cooking. Stir until pasta is cool then drain in a colander shaking to release as much water as possible.
Step 3In a large bowl, mix pasta with Hidden Valley® Original Ranch® Light Dressing and mix to coat. Add in the peas, carrots, and bacon. Season with salt and pepper.
Step 4Cook’s note: If making ahead of time, cover and refrigerated the salad until ready to serve, then add the bacon right before serving.
