There is nothing better than a good pasta salad to go along with a meal, especially one that involves meat – like a BBQ.


This particular pasta salad is not terribly fancy and doesn’t require many different ingredients either. The key to this creamy ranch macaroni salad is to let it marinate in the refrigerator overnight. If you didn’t plan accordingly, at least try to let sit in your refrigerator for 2 hours. It will be well worth it in the end!


How to Make this Recipe


Cook pasta al dente according to directions on package. Drain water then rinse pasta shells in cold water to stop them from further cooking. Set aside.


In a large bowl, combine diced onion, diced celery and parsley. Mix well.


Add cooled pasta shells to the onion mixture and toss until well mixed.


Add the sour cream and half the ranch dressing mix to pasta mixture. Toss until well mixed.


Add the mayonnaise and the remaining ranch dressing mix. Toss again until well mixed. Add shredded cheddar cheese and toss well once again.


Cover and refrigerate for a couple of hours before serving.
