It's officially summer and that means BBQ's, pool days, beach trips and a lot of eating outside! To prepare for the summer, I am all over Pinterest looking for the perfect summer pasta. 

I wasn't always a ranch fanatic. I actually hated it as a child then sometime while I was at college, I became obsessed!! When I came across this ranch pasta, I knew I had to try it and it is DELISH! 

If you know me by now, you know that I never follow recipes so here is the ingredients list and you can add the amount you think is best!

Cooked Pasta - I like bowtie! (about 3/4 of the box)
Ranch Dressing - Add until the pasta is slightly saturated. Make sure you don't OVER saturate the pasta or it will be soupy.
Cherry Tomatoes
Shredded Carrots
(Add any additional veggies you want.)

Side note - I made this pasta last night and was honestly too lazy to cut up all the veggies (pathetic, I know) so I went to the salad bar and got what I needed and it was super quick and still really yummy!

Let me know if you try this pasta and what veggies you included!
