Ingredients

Instructions
  1. Boil 1 lb box of pasta in salted water

  2. While pasta boils, in a large bowl mix together Miracle Whip, ranch seasoning, parsley, pepper, onion and garlic powder.

  3. When pasta is cooked, rinse pasta in cold water to bring the temperature down. Let pasta sit in collander for a minute or two to let the majority of the water drain, but do not shake the pasta dry, you will want the little extra water in your rance sauce.

  4. Add pasta to your ranch sauce bowl and stir until pasta is well coated in ranch.

  5. Top with bacon pieces and cheese. Mix together until combined.

Recipe Notes

Use your choice of cheese, I’ve used ‘Italian blend’, cheddar, and colby jack in mine and they all taste good.

Use real bacon, not the cheap bacon bits, you won’t regret it. It can also be eliminated, but it does taste better with bacon.

Add in some shredded chicken to make it more of a meal instead of side dish.
