Ranch Bacon Cheese Pasta Salad

Here’s the full recipe for Ranch Bacon and Cheese Pasta Salad:


1 package (16 oz) elbow noodles
Ranch dressing (amount according to preference)
Real bacon bits (to taste)
Real cheese block (whichever kind you prefer), cut into small cubes
Salt and pepper to taste


Cook the elbow noodles according to the package instructions until they are al dente. Drain the noodles in a strainer and rinse them with cold water to stop the cooking process and cool them down.
In a large mixing bowl, combine the cooled elbow noodles with ranch dressing. The amount of ranch dressing used can vary depending on how creamy you prefer your pasta salad. Start with a moderate amount and adjust to taste.
Add the real bacon bits to the bowl with the noodles and ranch dressing. You can add as much or as little bacon as you like, depending on your preference for bacon flavor.
Cut the real cheese block into small cubes and add them to the bowl with the other ingredients.
Season the pasta salad with salt and pepper to taste. Be mindful of the salt content of the ranch dressing and bacon bits when adding additional salt.
Mix all the ingredients together until the ranch dressing evenly coats the noodles, bacon bits, and cheese cubes.
If you rinsed the noodles with cold water, the pasta salad should be somewhat cold and ready to eat. If not, refrigerate the pasta salad for a couple of hours before serving to chill it thoroughly.
Once chilled, serve the Ranch Bacon and Cheese Pasta Salad as a delicious side dish or main course.
Enjoy your creamy, flavorful pasta salad with the perfect combination of ranch, bacon, and cheese!
