Here is Tim's Turkey Bacon Ranch Pasta Salad Recipe:

Ingredients:

-One box tri-color pasta(or any type of pasta you have)

-1 cup Chopped turkey bacon (or real bacon if you want to indulge)

-2 cups frozen peas that have been thawed and drained

-1 cup Cherry tomatoes, sliced in half

-1 cup Shredded carrot

-1 cup Ranch dressing (to taste)

-Scallions would be good too - (to taste)

-1 cup Shredded cheddar cheese

Instructions:

Cook your pasta according to the directions on the box.  Make sure not to overcook the pasta.  It's better if the pasta is al dente.  Rinse the cooked pasta in cold water, drain well and set aside.

In a large mixing bowl, combine the vegetables and bacon.  Add the cooked pasta. Pour the Ranch dressing over the mixture and gently stir until everything is evenly coated(feel free to use a little extra ranch if you like your salad creamier).  Transfer the salad to your favorite serving dish and sprinkle cheddar cheese over the entire dish.  Keep refrigerated until ready to serve.  

Be sure to let Tim know if you try out his recipe - and if you made any interesting adjustments to it for you and your family.  We love to find out what our customers are cooking up!
