Pasta of Choice
I used shells
Cut crosswise into 1″ pieces
Chopped into 2″ pieces
Salt and Pepper
Cook pasta according to package directions to al dente in heavily salted water. Drain and rinse with cool water. Set aside.
In a large skillet, cook chopped bacon over medium heat until crisp – approximately 5 minutes. Remove with a slotted spoon. Leave bacon grease in the pan.
Add chopped chicken to the bacon grease and cook over medium heat until cooked through, stirring occasionally – approximately 7 minutes. Salt and pepper to taste. Set aside.
In a large bowl, combine chopped lettuce, diced tomato, and minced onion.
In a small bowl, whisk together mayo and ranch dressing, then add to the lettuce, tomato and onion. Mix until well-coated.
Add pasta, chicken and bacon an mix thoroughly. Add salt and pepper to taste. Cool and store in a large zip top bag. This will last several days refrigerated or in a cold ice chest.
