1 lb tri-color spiral pasta (or your favorite – cooked and drained according to package directions.)
1 medium onion, diced
1 medium green bell pepper, diced
2 -3 medium roma tomatoes, seeded and chopped
1 (2 1/4 ounce) canripe black olives, drained
4 ounces cheddar cheese, grated or diced
1 tablespoon Bacos bacon bits
1 cup of your favorite bottled ranch dressing (I use Kraft Free Ranch)
1 tablespoon water, add to dressing if it very thick (optional)
fresh black pepper
in a large container gently combine all ingredients mixing well.
Cover and refrigerate at least 30 minutes, the longer it mingles the better it tastes!
