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.
