Made this many, many times for different crowds: family, older veterans I help at a meeting with, kids, co-workers pot lucks. Everyone loved it and it is a staple in my recipe book too! Took many different suggestions that I saw on here and allgood. My faves: using bacon ranch dressing, adding bacon bits and green onions. Also, just did it using a low-cal version my new personal trainer appproved of, and no one at the last party knew! Used the new yogurt ranch dressing bottles you find in the produce department, used low-salt turkey bacon and whole wheat pasta shells. Tomatoes, green onions and pepper were added. Also, for all those looking foer the "L" in BLT....I always shred up lettuce and add it at the last minute. (Don't do it early, as with all the bacon , or it will get too soggy). I put bacon bits and some of regular bacon in when I put it all together before I put it in fridge...the pasta soaks up the dressing and the bacon flavor gets in it too. Then before I serve or bring it to a party, I add more dressing or water and the rest of bacon and shredded lettuce and it is great! Enjoy....
