    Crafty Lady 13's Note:

    A delightful pasta salad with the great taste of bacon, cheddar cheese and a creamy sauce made from a packet of ranch dressing. My coworkers ask me to bring this to covered luncheons often. Time does not include chill time.

      The only change I made was to omit the olives. Delicious salad with a wonderful flavor! Made for A/NZ recipe swap.

      I made this to bring to a pot luck. I used low fat ingredients and low sodium bacon. I increased the amount of bacon, tomatoes and cheese from the original recipe, otherwise too much pasta. I added salt and pepper and the salad does not need salt with all the bacon. I thought it tasted salty but others did not. It was only refrigerated for about an hour and I think all pasta salads should chill longer than that to get all the flavors melded. All in all, very good and pretty fast and easy. I think it would serve at least 12 as a side dish, even more on a buffet/pot luck.

      Only changes I made were to omit the olives. Everyone who tried this loved it, and my husband can't wait to have the rest in his lunch tomorrow!
