Serves: 10 

  • 500g seashell pasta
  • 500g sliced bacon
  • 1 1/2 cups light Ranch salad dressing
  • 1 small onion, chopped
  • 2 tomatoes, chopped

Preparation:45min  ›  Cook:10min  ›  Extra time:8hours chilling  ›  Ready in:8hours55min 

  1. Bring a large pot of lightly salted water to a boil. Add the pasta and cook until tender, about 8 minutes. Drain and rinse under cold water to cool.
  2. Meanwhile, cook the bacon in a large deep frypan over medium-high heat until browned and crisp. Remove from the pan and drain on paper towels.
  3. In a large bowl, stir together the Ranch dressing, onion and tomatoes. Mix in the cooled pasta. The pasta will absorb some of the dressing, so don't worry if it seems like too much. Refrigerate for several hours or overnight. Crumble bacon over the top just before serving.
