Why I Love This Recipe


Ingredients You'll Need

2 C. uncooked shell pasta
4-5 peeled baby carrots or 1 large regular carrot, shredded
1 C. frozen peas, thawed
3/4 C. mayonnaise, more if desired but NOT miracle whip
1 1 oz. packet Hidden Valley Ranch dressing mix
1/4 C. bacon bits (I use Hormel REAL bacon bits or pieces)
1/2 tsp. onion powder


In large bowl, mix mayo, dressing mix, bacon bits, shredded carrots and onion powder. Chill this mixture while you continue making the rest of the salad.

Cook pasta al dente, drain and cool. Fold in pasta carefully. Gently fold in peas last. Chill for several hours and serve

Garnish top with more bacon bits pieces.
