Reviews for Ranch Broccoli Pasta Salad
"My family loved this salad!!!! It was very easy and super delicious. We also had to add some extra dressing, not much, and I also threw in some blue cheese that I had to use up and it was very, very good!!! We will definitely be making this again!"
"I used less broccoli and had to add some regular ranch salad dressing as it was otherwise too dry. Next time I'll double the sauce. Good flavor."
"this recipe is really yummy and so easy! i cooked turkey bacon and the broccoli in the microwave, and threw the salad together so quickly. very tasty!"
"I made this for a family dinner. There didn't seem to be enough dressing....if I make it again I would double the dressing."
