This Bacon Ranch Pasta Salad is filled with creamy ranch, plenty of bacon and lots of cheese and makes a cool and delicious side dish to any BBQ meal!
Welcome to BBQ Week! It’s day 3 and already I’ve found loads of recipes I’d like to try.
Be sure and follow the hashtag #BBQWeek on social media to find all kinds of fantastic recipes.
You’re sure to find lots of great dishes to make for your next backyard BBQ or summer pool party!
Stay tuned for a delicious cocktail on Thursday, and another great easy to make dessert on Friday.
But today, let’s talk Bacon Ranch Pasta Salad.
We love this Bacon Ranch Pasta Salad so much.
We tend to make this a lot in the summer just to serve as a side with any meal.
But come party time, whether it’s a simple backyard BBQ, pool party or full out tailgating party, it’s still one of our go-to favorites.
It’s a favorite because it can be made up a day ahead and so easily be double and even tripled. Score!
One of the things I love about pasta salad is that you truly can make it your own.
But especially with a recipe like this.
We love adding and changing up ingredients.
A few things that go extra well in this pasta salad are:
- sliced cherry tomatoes
- chopped broccoli
- chopped onions for extra flavor
- shredded chicken
The additions are pretty much limited to only your imagination.
Everything goes better with Ranch as they say.
Be sure and check out today’s recipes for more fantastic summer BBQ dishes!
