Bacon Ranch Pasta Salad Recipe

Warmer weather means BBQ and salads for my family. There is nothing better than watching the kids play while my hubby and I prepare dinner outdoors, then a gathering around the picnic table. That family time is so important and why waste a minute of it with lengthy meal prep? Our Bacon Ranch Pasta Salad takes less than 10 minutes to create and offers a prefect balance of tangy and crunch. This is one of those go-to side dishes my entire family enjoys!
