I added powdered Ranch dressing mix to this along with the bottled ranch to give it more flavor. My family loved it and it was very easy to make!

Very easy! Very yummy. My 3 little girls loved it as well. I was really pressed for time, so I used pre cooked/cut/grilled chicken breast. Yum!!!

Excellent recipe, however I used homemade Italian dressing, bottled would do nicely as well.

Are you sure this calls for UNcooked dried pasta? Might be a bit crunchy for my taste. Otherwise this sounds like a winner.
