How to Make Bacon Ranch Pasta Salad


  1. In a large stock pot, boil the pasta per box directions and strain after cooking.
  2. While the pasta is boiling, cook the bacon. Allow it to cool and then cut into bits.
  3. After you have drained the pasta, rinse it with cold water to bring the temperature down. Make sure it's not warm at all or things will get very mushy.
  4. Transfer to a large mixing bowl. Combine all the ingredients, but leave some cheese and bacon for garnish.
  5. When ready to serve, top with additional bacon bits, cheese and crispy fried onions.
