I used to hate all pasta salads until my best friend's mom made one a few years back. I tried a small bite of it and loved the flavor. The dressing used gives it a nice kick. I cook the pasta the night before and mix in the dry ranch, cucumber, pepperoni, olives, and half of the bottle of dressing to let the flavors mix overnight. The next day I add the cheeses and the remaining dressing. It's the perfect summer side dish and always goes quick at cookouts.
