Cheddar Ranch Pasta Salad The Southern Lady Cooks

This Cheddar Ranch Pasta Salad is great for a cookout or gathering. We love pasta salad and this one will not disappoint! My husband loves peas so anytime I can use them in a dish, he’s happy. The peas, cheddar cheese, and ranch add such a wonderful flavor to this salad. You can make this dish the night before and enjoy it for a few days.  You could double the recipe or even cut it in half.  It keeps well refrigerated.  Make this for any holiday or event and you probably won’t bring any home.

Cheddar ranch pasta salad is easy and delicious.

2 cups of elbow macaroni, uncooked

1/4 cup of diced red onion

1 1/2 cups of frozen peas, thawed

1 cup of mayonnaise

1 packet of Hidden Valley Original Ranch Salad Dressing Seasoning Mix
