How to Make Bacon Ranch Pasta Salad

Step-by-Step

  • 1In a large stock pot, boil the pasta per box directions and strain after cooking.
  • 2While the pasta is boiling, cook the bacon. Allow it to cool and then cut into bits.
  • 3After 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.
  • 4Transfer to a large mixing bowl. Combine all the ingredients, but leave some cheese and bacon for garnish.
  • 5When ready to serve, top with additional bacon bits, cheese and crispy fried onions.
