Creamy Italian Ranch Pasta Salad

Creamy Italian Ranch Pasta Salad

Rachel Riesgraf
Creamy Italian Ranch Pasta Salad is the best pasta salad recipe that I make on repeat all summer long. It's always a huge hit and is super easy to make! Made with juicy tomatoes, fresh broccoli and cauliflower, arugula, black olives, and red onion, this pasta salad is packed full of veggies then tossed in Italian and Ranch dressing! The combination is addicting. Perfect for potlucks, BBQs or as a weeknight side dish. Everyone will be going back for more.
