October World Pasta Month- Ranch Pasta Salad

I just found out it is World Pasta Month!  So with that I'm sharing my favorite pasta salad recipe.

Start with chopping your favorite vegetables into bite size pieces. I use a food chopper. The more bright vibrant colors the better. I have broccoli, yellow peppers, carrots and red peppers.

Cook a package of pasta until tender. I'm using shell pasta here. Mix cooked and cooled pasta with chopped vegetables together in a large bowl.  Stir in 2 Cups Ranch dressing. I like to make homemade Ranch.

If desired stir in chopped ham or bacon bits. Chill several hours or until ready to serve.

I like to use this vegetable chopper for this recipe, because it makes small bite size pieces.
