Soccer season is presenting a real challenge to dinnertime. We’ve been picnicking on the field while we watch the games. But sandwiches can get old, especially if you’ve packed one for lunch too. I created this easy pasta salad to take with us one night. It’s creamy and flavorful with homemade ranch dressing.
Here’s what you’ll need:
- 1 lb. Penne
- 1/2 lb. bacon, cooked
- 5 Roma tomatoes
- 3/4 cup mayonnaise
- 1/2 cup sour cream
- 1 clove garlic, minced
- 1 tsp. seasoned salt
- 1/2 tsp. dill
- small bunch parsley, chopped
Cook the pasta according to the package directions. Chop the tomatoes and crumble the bacon.
Mix the mayo, sour cream, garlic, seasoned salt, dill and parsley together in a bowl.
Drain the pasta and run it under cool water. Mix the pasta, tomatoes, bacon and dressing together. Refrigerate until ready to serve.
