Barbecue Ranch Pasta Salad


When the weather get super hot the last thing I want to do it heat up the kitchen. Plus after a long day of work I do not want to be working in a hot kitchen. That is when easy pasta salads like this come in handy.

Just make sure you do not skip the crushed corn chips on top. They add a nice crunch to the salad. When I told my husband about the salad in the fridge to eat I forgot to mention the chips on top. So the next time he had it I remembered to tell him and he commented on how it was really good before, but with the chips it was even better.

Barbecue Ranch Pasta Salad
Ingredients:
1 pound cavatappi pasta
1 1/2 cups Honey Barbecue dressing
1/2 cup light sour cream
15 ounces black beans, rinsed and drained
1 cup frozen corn, thawed
1/2 red bell pepper, diced
1/2 small red onion, finely diced
1 1/2 cups shredded sharp cheddar cheese
corn chips, crushed

Directions:
Cook the pasta according to the package directions until al dente. Drain and rinse with cold water. Once the pasta is completely cooled and drained transfer to a large bowl.

In a medium bowl stir together the honey barbecue dressing and sour cream. Pour the dressing over the pasta and stir to mix.

Add the black beans, corn, red pepper, red onion and cheddar cheese. Stir to mix well. Refrigerate until ready to serve.

When ready to serve top individual servings with crushed corn chips.

Enjoy!!!
