Total Time15 mins
- 1 lb radiatore pasta
- 16 oz ranch dressing
- 2 cups diced tomatoes seeds removed
- 1 1/2 cup cubed Swiss
- 1/2 cup red onion thinly sliced
- 1 lb bacon cooked crisp and crumbled
- 2 cups finely chopped romaine or iceberg lettuce
- salt and pepper to taste
Cook the pasta, according to package directions, in salted water.
Drain pasta. Toss with just enough dressing so that the pasta is lightly coated and won’t stick together. Refrigerate until cold.
In a large bowl, toss the pasta with the tomatoes, Swiss, onion, bacon, and lettuce.
Add enough dressing to generously coat everything, and season with salt and pepper to taste.
Serve & enjoy immediately, or chill in the refrigerator and then serve!If not serving immediately, don’t mix the lettuce in until you’re ready to serve to prevent wilting.
