Not Your Grandma's Pasta Salad
We have had all out share of pasta salad's at various different social gatherings, so I decided that I needed to take one to the next level. This is a great recipe for any gathering, parties, showers, and pot luck dinners.
1 1/2 lbs chicken breast cooked and cubed - I seasoned mine with Fiesta Brand Southwest Fajita Seasoning
4 slices of thick cut bacon cooked and chopped
1 orange bell pepper chopped
1 green bell pepper chopped
1 cucumber chopped
5 cups of cooked pasta of your choice
2 cups homemade ranch dressing
6 ounces uncooked baby spinach
3 stalks celery chopped
Salt and pepper to taste
In a large mixing bowl mix all ingredients except the ranch dressing. You can add all of the dressing if you would like or just as little as you please. There are some who like it swimming in ranch and others like it just be lightly covered in dressing. I also added in salt and pepper to taste. Serve chilled!
