Prep Time20 minsCook Time20 minsTotal Time40 mins
 3 cups GF noodles
 1 cup sweet onions, diced
 1 cup frozen corn
 1 cup diced carrots
 1 cup frozen peas
 1 cup fresh or frozen broccoli, cut small (optional)
 ½ cup celery, sliced (optional)
 2 cups cheddar cheese, cubed
 1 can olives, slived
 1 chicken breast, "grilled" and cubed
 ½ lb bacon, cooked and crushed (optional)
 GF salad dressing (Italian or ranch)
1

Cook gluten free noodles according to package directions. At the same time, boil onions, corn, carrots, broccoli, celery, and peas for 6 - 10 minutes (until carrots and broccoli are softened).

2

Once they are done cooking, drain veggies and pasta. Place pasta, veggies, cheese, olives, chicken, and bacon (if desired) in a large bowl.

3

Toss with salad dressing, to taste. (By the way, the key to making a good "Ranch" flavored pasta salad is to add LOTS of ranch dressing.

4

You want the pasta salad to have a nice coating of dressing on it. If you do not add enough, the salad just has a faint "mayonnaise" flavor and really is not very good at all. But if you have got enough salad dressing on it is good.)
