Kickin' Ranch Pasta With Meatballs #RSC

"Ready, Set, Cook! Hidden Valley Contest Entry I love this recipe because it is family friendly, plus kids love pasta and meatballs. I also love Italian food and using Ranch in my recipe kicked it up a notch. I created this recipe for my family to enjoy. *Tip, powdered Parmesan works best for this recipe because it melts better in the sauce."

    I tried this flavorful recipe! This recipe was very easy to follow, the ingredients were easy to find and fairly inexpensive. The sauce was very creamy and flavorful, love the ranch flavors going on. The meatballs were moist and yummy!! Such an easy one dish meal you could easily add broccolli or some peppers to this dish or serve with a garden salad!! Love it!

    We had to try this recipe, it had two different kinds of ranch, including our absolute favorite, Fiesta ranch! I've made Alfredo style past before,but the flavor in this was AMAZING! Yummy, rich and my whole family loved it. My 6 year old commented on how much he liked the ranch in it too. I can see how you could add veggies like broccoli or bell peppers to it and make it your own too. Definitely a keeper in our house!

    I tried this dish at a dinner party and it was absolutely delicious I loved the extra creamy alfredo sauce and the two different kinds of ranch made it very flavorful. The meatballs were so tender they seemed to melt in my mouth. Definitely a very tasty recipe that I will try again.<br/><br/>Read more at:
