  1. Bring a large pot of lightly salted water to a boil. Cook bow tie pasta at a boil, stirring occasionally, until cooked through yet firm to the bite, about 12 minutes; drain. Transfer to a large bowl.
  2. Stir tomatoes, bacon, and romaine lettuce into bow tie pasta. Whisk mayonnaise, ranch dressing, onion powder, garlic salt, and black pepper together in a small bowl. Pour over pasta mixture; toss to coat. Chill in refrigerator for 2 to 3 hours before serving.

  • Aluminum foil helps keep food moist, ensures it cooks evenly, keeps leftovers fresh, and makes clean-up easy.

Very good in all honesty, but for a pasta salad it needs some extra goodies in there.

I love pasta salads and this one was really good!

This has been a hit for my family! But i used Romaine lettuce and cherry tomatoes. Also added some Parm cheese!

I was looking for something quick and easy to make for lunch and found this pasta :D It's a super cheap pasta to make (YEAY) healthy and it takes very little time to make :D Only change I made i...

Everyone loved this salad. Thanks for the recipe.

I made this for a pot luck. Everyone loved it. I thought just a little bland so I will add a little more seasonings to it next time I make it.

My husband loved it. Only change I made, I used one bag of classic romaine lettuce instead of the head of romaine.

Wonderful salad for a crowd. I used 1 lb of bacon and 3 heads of romaine lettuce otherwise the dressing would of been too heavy.

My sister made this and substituted a small diced red onion for the onion powder. It needed a little more flavor so she added Italian dressing as was suggested in another recipe.
