My husband (and me) are big fans of the Betty Crocker Suddenly Salads. We particularly are fond of the Suddenly Salad Ranch & Bacon Pasta mix. I have been buying the box mixes for the last couple months and have been wanting to find a recipe to make it from scratch that would taste similar. I don’t mind buying the box mixes, but making my own sounds like more fun! Okay, so I found a recipe I thought would work for me.
Now here goes the my version of the recipe I found ….
2 cups – Small shell pasta
2/3 cup mayo – I prefer the Kraft Mayo w/Olive Oil
1 package Hidden Valley Ranch Dressing Mix
8oz young peas (drained)
1/4 cup shredded baby carrots
1/2 tsp onion powder
Bacon Bits – (I used 1/3 cup of the Oscar Meyer Real Bacon Bits)
- You will want to cook your noodles as directed on package. Once cooked, rinse with cold water and drain.
- Add mayo, ranch dressing package, carrots, peas, bacon bits and onion power. Stir ingredients until well mixed. You may want to cool in fridge for 1 to 2 hours before serving.
