Bacon Pasta Salad
1 pound rotini pasta
1 package sliced bacon
1 1/4 cups mayonnaise
1/4 cup buffalo wing sauce
1 (1-ounce) packet dry ranch salad dressing mix
1/2 cup diced red bell pepper
1 1/2 teaspoons minced garlic
1 cup shredded sharp Cheddar cheese
Bring 2 quarts of water to a boil. Add pasta and cook for 10 to 12 minutes, or al dente. Drain and rinse with cold water. Set aside.
Meanwhile, cook bacon in a large saucepan over medium-high heat until crispy and brown, 10-12 minutes. Drain on paper towels. Chop into small pieces.
In a 2.5-quart temp-tations® bowl, whisk together the mayonnaise, buffalo sauce and ranch salad dressing mix. Mix in red bell pepper and garlic.
Add pasta, bacon and cheese.
Chill for at least 2 hours before serving.
