Pasta Salad

This is one of those recipes that you add whatever you like in it. I am listing what I put in mine but you can add anything from green peppers to radishes or any other vegetable that you like in a salad. I don't recommend tomatoes, cheese, crutons or lettuce because they get mushy after a day or so. But I do add them on when I serve them.

ranch dressing
shell macaroni (or regular macaroni, if you prefer)

Cook your macaroni until done. Meanwhile, wash and slice or chop your vegetables and put in a large bowl. I prefer homemade dressing, so I use the ranch original dressing package and make my own. When macaroni gets done, pour over veggies and mix well. Then add dressing, salt and pepper to taste and refrigerate for 24 hours. Serve with crutons, tomatoes and cheese and it is so yummy.

Another way to fix this is to use spaghetti noodles instead of macaroni and italian dressing. This is really good with italian dishes. Hope you enjoy.
