Ranch Pasta Salad-Low Fat

 Ranch Pasta Salad-Low Fat. I use to buy this pasta salad already prepared in a box until I made up my own recipe. #easy #pasta #salad #lowfat #recipe

This Low Fat Ranch Pasta Salad is one of my favorites.  I use to buy this pasta salad already prepared in a box until I made up my own recipe.

One thing about pasta is you can almost add any ingredients to the salad and make it your own original.

Make traditional pasta salad even better! Just add hidden valley ranch dressing from the package.

This is how I like to make this Low Fat Ranch Pasta Salad.  Be creative and add your own recipe with using different ingredients.
