Chicken and Bacon Ranch Pasta Salad

So my first summertime recipe is here. It was delicious if I do say so myself and thoroughly satisfying, especially since I didn't have much cooking to do at all. Ingredients: Cooked pasta (use what you like and the amount that you usually need for your family) 1/2 lb. cubed and sautéed chicken 8 strips of bacon cooked and crumbled 3/4 cup ranch dressing 3 carrots, cut small and blanched 6 small sweet peppers, diced small 1 stalk celery sliced thin 1/4 lb. mozzarella cheese diced small 1 cup blanched collards, sliced thin cut up all the veggies to the above specifications and then mix with the meat, cheese and pasta. Add the ranch dressing and mix well. I served this topped with the bacon crumbles and a sprinkle of parmesan cheese. It was a wonderful filling meal that wasn't too heavy and didn't heat up the kitchen. Considering we were in the mid 80s yesterday that was nice. this served our family of 4 with some leftovers for lunch today which will be served with deviled eggs. Blessings, Kat
