What is in this Pasta Salad?

This Chicken Bacon Ranch Pasta Salad includes pasta, chicken, bacon, cheddar cheese, tomato, zucchini, and Ranch Dressing.

If you enjoy Outback Ranch dressing, you will do a “Happy Dance” over this Chicken Bacon Ranch Pasta Salad.  I used a Copycat Outback Ranch Dressing to make this pasta salad.  This copycat Ranch recipe came from Top Secret Restaurant Recipes 2 by Todd Wilbur.  The first time I made this Outback Ranch Dressing my family was crazy for it.  They loved it so much which motivated me to create several recipes using it, including this Chicken Bacon Ranch Pasta Salad, Slow Cooker Chicken Bacon Ranch Pizza Recipe, and Chicken Bacon Ranch Wraps.  I added several of our favorite ingredients including pasta, chicken, bacon, and Ranch.  I even hid zucchini and tomatoes in it.  Lately, I have made this pasta several times.  Each time I make this Chicken Bacon Ranch Pasta Salad, the results were great.  It is also delicious served warm or cold right out of the refrigerator.
