Bacon Tomato Ranch Pasta Salad
Pasta salad with ranch and bacon."If used as leftovers the bacon gets kinda rubbery. I would recommend using the bacon as a topper and adding just before use. Also, the cheap mozzarella isn't such a great texture in this. I would certainly recommend the freshest stuff you can get. The mix of flavors was yummy, loved the crunch of the cucumber. Like the idea of adding bacon grease, may try that next time." - jlburgart

Cook pasta till done, rinse with cold water and allow to drain. While pasta is cooking, fry bacon till semi-crisp and allow to cool. Then break bacon into small pieces and add to other ingrediants. Add pasta, stir in ranch dressing till everything is coated and well mixed. Chill. You can also add any of these: green onion, croutons, bell pepper. Try using Peppercorn Ranch, for an extra kick. Recipe is open to experimentation.
