Creamy Pasta Salad

Do ever just have a craving for something light and refreshing?  I especially like to have something light on hand for weekend lunches when we are running around and trying to get a millions things accomplished.

We tried this recipe from www.SimplyRealMoms.com and really loved it!  It packed up really nice for lunches too!

Creamy Pasta Salad

Adapted from SimplyRealMoms

Ingredients

  • ½ box shaped pasta
  • 1 head of broccoli, chopped
  • 
1 cup frozen peas, thawed
  • ½ pkg mini pepperonis (regular size is ok, too)
  • 
8 Monterey Jack cheese sticks (snack sticks) cut into chunks (you can use any kind of cheese that you like) 
  • 

Ranch dressing

Instructions

  1. Cook pasta according to directions on the box. Drain it.
  2. Place colander with drained pasta into a bowl with ice and water in it to cool it off.
  3. Put all the rest of the ingredients, except the ranch dressing into a bowl.
 Pour the cooled pasta onto a clean towel and really dry it off.
  4. Pour pasta into the bowl
. Stir in the ranch as you like it. A little, a lot—there’s no exact science to it.
