Suddenly Salad Ranch and Bacon Pasta Salad Recipe


  • 2 cups dry Shell Pasta
  • 1 (8 ounce) can very young Peas, drained (important because they are small and crisp)
  • 2/3 cup Mayonnaise – do not use Miracle Whip (we always use Duke’s)
  • 1 packet of Hidden Valley Ranch Ranch Dressing mix
  • 3-4 peeled Baby Carrots, shredded
  • Bacon Bits (real or fake, fresh cooked or in a can)
  • 1/2 teaspoon Onion Powder


  1. Bring water to a rolling boil in a saucepan.
  2. Add shell pasta and carrot shreds and cook according to the instructions on the pasta package.
  3. Drain into a strainer and rinse under cold water.
  4. In a medium sized bowl, mix together the peas, the entire packet of ranch dressing mix, bacon bits, onion powder, and mayonnaise.
  5. Add pasta and carrots.
  6. Stir together until everything is coated with mayo-seasoning mixture.
  7. Chill and serve.
