Creamy Ranch Pasta Salad

Let's Make...

"Creamy ranch pasta salad loaded is sure to be the belle of your next barbecue. Quick, easy, and delicious featuring crisp red onion, fresh ham, veggies, and tri color pasta."


Dressing: – ½ cup Mayo – ½ cup Sour Cream Light or Regular, or Plain Greek Yogurt – 1.5 tablespoon Dry Ranch Dressing


Pasta Salad: – 4 cups Tri Color Rotini Pasta – 8 ounces Diced Ham – 1 cup Frozen Peas, Thawed – ½ cup Red Onion, Diced – ½ cup Black Olives, Sliced – ½ cup Shredded Parmesan


 Don’t over-cook or the pasta will be mushy! I find it important to immediately drain and rinse the pasta under cool water to stop the cooking process.

Cook the Pasta

Bring a large pot of water to a boil. Add rotini pasta and cook until al dente, about 8 minutes. Drain water. Rinse pasta with cold water to cool. Set aside.


Make the Dressing

 In a large bowl, whisk together the mayonnaise, sour cream, dry ranch mix.



Add pasta, ham, peas, and red onion to the dressing bowl. Stir until well combined. Add olives and gently toss to combine.
