How to make it
- Cook pasta according to package directions for al dente. Drain in a colander. Transfer to a large bowl. Add in the peas, carrots, celery, cucumber, red pepper, onion, tomatoes, bacon and olives. Gently mix. In a small bowl, whisk together the mayonnaise, ranch salad dressing mix and barbecue sauce.
- If making ahead, store the pasta salad and the dressing in separate sealed containers in the fridge until ready to serve. Just before serving, pour the dressing over the pasta salad and toss to combine. Serve cold.
