BLT Pasta Salad

BLT Pasta Salad is a creamy pasta salad full of crispy bacon pieces, tomatoes, and chopped Romaine lettuce. It's one of my favorite summer pasta salads. Goes great with burgers, hot dogs, or grilled chicken.

  • 12 ounces uncooked pasta, cavatappi, bow ties, shells, or macaroni are all good choices
  • 1/2 cup Ranch dressing
  • 1/2 cup mayonnaise
  • 1/3 cup sour cream
  • 1/2 cup diced red onion
  • 1 1/2 cups halved cherry tomatoes or diced fresh tomato
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper
  • 4 cups chopped Romaine lettuce
  • 8 slices bacon, cooked and crumbled


  • Cook pasta according to package directions in salted water. Drain and rinse under cold water.
  • In a large bowl, stir together Ranch dressing, mayonnaise, and sour cream.
  • Stir in the pasta, red onion, tomatoes, salt and pepper. Cover and refrigerate for at least 1 hour.
  • Just before serving, stir in Romaine and bacon.


If the pasta salad has been refrigerated for a while, the pasta may have soaked up a lot of the mayoonaise mixture. Stir in a little more mayonnaise and Ranch dressing just before serving.
