Neither I, or my husband care for pasta salad. I was recently asked, however, to make a batch for a party. I found this recipe and decided to give it a try but with some changes. I used shell pasta and because hate bottled ranch dressing, I made it using the packaged using buttermilk and adding a tsp of garlic powder. I cubed the cheese instead of using shredded and added thawed, frozen peas, some slightly cooked, bite sized broccoli and a small, chopped red onion instead of white. I found that about half of the dressing was enough and let is sit for a few hours in the fridge so that the pasta could absorb the dressing and other flavors. It was a hit at the party and my husband and I actually enjoyed several servings ourselves. I will definitely make it again.
