I needed a kid friendly pasta salad for dinner, for my boys, wheels are life. Hence this recipe was created, plus it contains some of their favorite food (peas, broccoli and ranch).
1lb. Bag Wagon Wheel Pasta
1 C Frozen Corn, defrosted
1 C Frozen Peas, defrosted
2 Heads Broccoli, florets removed
15 oz. Bacon Ranch Dressing (regular is fine)
1/4 C Italian Dressing
1/2 tsp. Chipotle Chili Powder (optional)
-Mix Ranch and Italian Dressing with chili powder together, set aside.
-Place broccoli florets in steamer basket, sprinkle with salt, steam 5 minutes. Remove and dice small.
-Cook pasta per package directions, drain and run under cold water to stop cooking and cool off. Drain again.
-Mix pasta, peas, corn and broccoli together; add in ranch mix, stir well to blend. Place in fridge at least 1 hour prior to serving.
-Stir well before serving. Enjoy!
