Bacon Ranch Pasta Salad

How was Halloween? Unfortunately, we did not get very many trick-or-treaters this year. Friday night Halloween was filled with many events so people chose to go to those events rather than to trick-or-treat. Sad face over here. But we still had fun. We mingled with the neighbors, drank good beer and welcomed the cooler weather that slowly crept in that night. On Saturday, we went to the Jupiter car show and checked out cool classic cars. Then on the way home we picked up some Chinese food. I’ve been craving Chinese food for DAYS so the Chinese food made my Saturday complete. On Sunday I did some baking and made a fudge recipe with some of the GOBS of candy we have left. I’ll be sharing it later this week! So overall, the weekend was fantastic.

Recipe type: salad
Serves: 4 Cups


  • 8oz large pasta shells
  • 1 C cooked crumbled bacon
  • ⅓ C ranch dressing
  • ⅓ C mayo
  • ½ C diced English cucumber
  • ½ tbsp ranch dressing seasoning mix
  • 1 tbsp diced pimento
  • 2 tbsp fresh chives, chopped, plus more for garnish


  1. Cook the pasta according to package directions. Drain and cool. I cool mine quicker by leaving the pasta in my colander and putting some ice in the colander.
  2. Once the pasta is cooled, place it in a large mixing bowl with the remaining ingredients. Mix well. Garnish with fresh chives, if desired.
  3. Notes
  4. To make homemade ranch dressing and seasoning mix, try this ranch seasoning recipe from Gimme Some Oven.
