Pasta Salad

Okay, I cannot tell enough how much I love pasta salad. If there were only one style of food I got to enjoy| every day for the rest of my life, I would not be mad if pasta salad were it. Whenever I go to a restaurant with a buffet in it, I actually will always get pasta salad. Doses, no matter what kind it is, if they offer it, I will eat it. But my favorite of all pages that have sta salads is chicken, bacon, and Ranch pasta salad.

I do not think I know anyone that does not like a good bacon ranch pasta salad. After all, what is there not to like is bacon and ranch. This recipe is how my family and I enjoy this pasta salad, but like almost all of my recipes, there is also a lot of room to try out new things with the recipe and alter it to your taste.
