Macaroni Monday; Ranch BLT

Pasta and bacon, I meannnn...

Ranch BLT Macaroni Salad
1 box pasta, cooked and drained (we like to use the curly pasta for this one)
1/2 cup lite mayo
1/2 lite sour cream
1 1/2 cup grape tomatos, cut in half with juices
3-4 tablespoons ranch dressing packet
2 tablespoons fresh or dried thyme, minced 
Salt and freshly ground pepper to taste
6-8 slices of cooked bacon
2 cups thin-sliced or chopped spinach 

  • In a large bowl mix mayo, sour cream, grape tomatoes, ranch dressing packet, thyme, salt and pepper for the dressing.
  • Add cooked pasta to the dressing.
  • Mix together cover and chill.
  • Before serving add the bacon and spinach.

Okay, so it really should be called Ranch B-S-T...but who cares what you call it when it tastes this good?!?!?
