Pasta Salad :)

Seems like my blog is more of recipes... hey I didn't get fat by not eating! ;)
Anyways, here's what you'll need:

1/2 box of macaroni noodles (you can use any kind of pasta you like)
Ranch Dressing (approx. 2 cups)
Small Can of Sliced black olives (drain very well in paper towel)
Bacon bits
1lb of grilled chicken
Ranch Seasoning packets
2 ribs of celery, diced finely
Salt and Pepper

1. Boil macaroni according to box.

2. Cubed and season chicken with ranch dressing packet, and cooking in pan with cooking spray until done.

3. Mix your dressing, celery, olives, bacon bits in the bottom of a medium sized bowl. (Use one with lid for easy access later, this makes enough for leftovers!)

4. Add your cooked noodles to the mix, and stir together.

5. Add grilled chicken to the top, and stir that in as well!

6. Let chill for about 15 minutes in the fridge and then enjoy with bread, or fresh celery. =)

You can add anything you want into this salad to make it what you like. You can add sliced carrots, peas, scallions, green olives, chopped onion, green pepper, etc. I just used what I had in the cabinet. :P You can also use whatever dressing you like, I just prefer a creamy base dressing for a salad. You could technically use anything from miracle whip to catalina.
