Top-ranked recipe named "Ranch Picnic Pasta Salad"
i love the stong flavor or the ranch and red vinegar in this. Yes this is much like the italian style pasta salad you can get at the deli but oh so much better. I prefer the lighter angel hair pasta but you might want to color it up with tricolored or shells or whatever.
Cook pasta according to package directions.
Prepare Italian dressing mix according to directions (but using about 1/2 the oil called for).
Mix Ranch dressing with vinegar and oil.
Drain pasta well and rinse with cold water, drain well again.
Place all ingredients into large bowl and toss well. best to let sit overnight in refridgerator to let tastes marinate well
Toss before serving.
