Pasta Salad

Pasta salad is perfect almost anywhere — at a picnic, next to barbecue, alongside fried chicken or with a sandwich. Creamy and cool, it always makes me think of summer! –Mellyn

  • 1 1/2 cups dry pasta
  • 1 cup freeze-dried peas
  • 2 Tablespoons dehydrated carrots
  • 1 1/2 Tablespoons ranch dressing mix (1/2 packet)
  • 3/4 cup mayonnaise
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 1/2 cup real bacon bits (optional)
  1. Cook pasta according to package directions.
  2. Rehydrate peas and carrots by covering with cold water. Let stand.
  3. Mix ranch dressing mix into milk and mayonnaise. Refrigerate.
  4. When pasta is done, rinse well and leave in cold water for a few minutes to cool.
  5. Drain peas, carrots and pasta.
  6. Combine pasta and ranch mixture, adding carrots and peas.
  7. Refrigerate until ready to serve (a couple of hours is preferrable, but in a pinch, we eat it lukewarm, and it’s still yummy!)
