Lauren's Bacon Ranch Pasta Salad instructions

  1. Cook bacon in skillet or oven at 400 degrees for 6-8 minutes or until crispy..
  2. Cook pasta according to package instructions. Remember to salt the pasta water so the noodles have some flavor. I use about 1 teaspoon salt. Drain the pasta and rinse under cold water so pasta can cool..
  3. In a mixing bowl combine the cooled pasta, cucumber, tomatoes, mozzarella cheese parmesan cheese and bacon. Stir. Add ranch and stir again to coat the noodles and veggies in the ranch..
  4. Serve right away or let it refrigerate for 1-2 hours before serving. Pasta salad tends to dry out in the fridge so don't leave it in there too long before serving. If needed, add some additional dressing or a dash of olive oil and give it a good stir to moisten it back up..
