I have made this recipe many times. I am not a cheese fan so I eliminate the cheese and I add dill to it. GREAT quick and easy salad to have for a quick bite or to take to carry in's Read More

I always keep on open mind to trying a new "twist" on various recipes and often in delighted with the results but I did not really care for this - maybe the sweetness and the ranch blend just wasn't appealing to me....and others took it the same way I took it to a family gathering a came home with a bowl full.

Oh my so good and easy! My husband loved this and proclaimed it to be his favorite pasta salad. I ran out of ranch dressing (I doubled the pasta) and mixed miracle whip white vinegar and sugar as a dressing stretch. Used pickle relish as a sub for the cut up pickles and no celery. Will make again with celery and maybe red onion. Thanks Amanda Read More

This seemed really dry with only 1/4 cup of dressing so doubled that still seemed dry so also added 1/4 cup mayo. It was okay but rather bland for my taste. Read More
