Creamy Ranch Macaroni Salad

Serves: 9
Total Calories: 639


1 (16-ounce) package medium shell pasta, uncooked
3/4 cup onion, chopped
1/2 cup celery, chopped
1 cup fresh Italian parsley, chopped
1 cup sour cream
1 (1-ounce) package ranch salad dressing mix, divided
1 cup mayonnaise
1/2 cup shredded Cheddar cheese


Cook shells according to package directions; drain and rinse with cold water. Set aside. Combine onion, celery and parsley in a large bowl; add shells and toss together. Add sour cream and half the salad dressing mix; stir well. Add mayonnaise and remaining dressing mix; stir again. Toss with Cheddar cheese.

Tip: Keep color and texture contrasts in mind as you plan dinner. For example, crispy, golden fried chicken teamed with creamy white macaroni salad and juicy red tomato slices…everything will taste twice as good!
