Ingredients
  • 3 cups bow-tie pasta, uncooked
  • ⅔ cup cheddar cheese crumbles
  • 6 slices cooked bacon, diced
  • 2-3 small tomatoes, seeded & diced
  • ⅔ cup fresh broccoli, chopped
  • ⅔ cup red onions, diced
  • ⅓ cup black olives
  • ½ cup mayonnaise (I used Dukes)
  • ½ cup creamy ranch dressing
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • ½-1 teaspoon oregano
Instructions
  1. Cook pasta until al dente. Be careful not overcook.
  2. Drain pasta and rinse with cold water until pasta is cool.
  3. Add drained pasta to a large bowl.
  4. Add in the bacon, broccoli, red onions, black olives, and tomatoes.
  5. Toss to combine. (you may need to add a tiny bit of water to moisten the pasta if it's too sticky to toss)
  6. In a small bowl, stir together the mayonnaise, ranch dressing, garlic and oregano.
  7. When ready to serve, mix the dressing in with the pasta mixture until well coated.
  8. Serve immediately.
Notes
~TIPS~ Feel free to add in your favorite veggies and meats! Dress the pasta salad right when you are ready to serve. If you like a super creamy pasta salad, double to dressing mixture.
