Ranch Pasta Salad Revisited


After revisiting this recipe from January, I felt the need to readdress it, improve it, and publish it with new photos and better flavor. Using fresh onions is much better than using dried minced onion. Onion powder is necessary to enhance the ranch flavor. Garlic powder is also better than fresh garlic because it can also disperse better. I added fresh green beans from my last fall harvest, and they were delicious and added great texture to this side dish. You could also add diced bell peppers if you want more excitement. I increased the amount of dressing that was made, and I increased the pasta amount to make 4-5 side portions for this recipe.

What You Will Need

  • 2 Cups Shaped Pasta
  • 1 Cup Green Beans
  • Large sauce pan
  • Salt
  • Colander
  • 1/2 Cup Ranch
  • 1 Cup Mayo
  • 2 tsp Onion powder
  • 1/2 Tbsp Garlic Powder
  • 1/2 Tbsp Chives
  • 2 Tbsp Diced Onion
  • Serving Bowl and Spoon


  1. Boil pasta and green beans until pasta is al dente. Strain and rinse with cold water. Shake off excess water.
  2. In Serving bowl, add ranch, mayo, onion, garlic powder, onion powder, and chives. Mix together. Add cooled pasta and green beans, and Stir.
  3. Refrigerate until serving.
