RECIPE: New Potato Pasta Salad

As weird as it sounds, potatoes and pasta really do taste great together.  We LOVE this salad and so does everybody who tries it! 

4 cups new potatoes, diced
12 oz. rainbow rotini
1 lb bacon, chopped, cooked and drained
8 hard boiled eggs, peeled and chopped
1 cup mayonnaise
1 cup ranch salad dressing

Boil large pot of water.  Drop in potatoes ( you don’t have to peel them) and cook for 3 minutes.  Add rotini and cook 10 to 12 minutes more until rotini and potatoes and done.  Drain.  You want about equal amounts of cooked rotini and potato.  In a very large bowl, wisk together mayonnaise and ranch dressing.  Add potatoes, rotini, bacon and eggs.  Stir and chill.  This is a big batch for a crowd.  You can half it for a family.
