Eventually Salad~ By Lydia

Richie has always really loved the "Suddenly Salad" from the box.  I had never eaten cold pasta salad until I married him, so, naturally I used the boxed kind.  It was good.  But, the ingredients on the back were...not so good!  So this is my healthier but still delicious version of bacon ranch "Suddenly Salad."

4 c. dry small shell pasta
1 lb cooked and crumbled bacon
3/4 c frozen peas
3/4 mayonnaise (you can make your own)
1 TB ranch dressing mix
1/4 tsp onion powder
1/2 c shredded carrot
 Cook pasta until done.  Add peas and boil 1 minute longer.  Strain, run under cold water to cool.
In the mean time, cook bacon until crispy.  Transfer to a paper-towel on a plate.  
Mix together last 4 ingredients, crumble in bacon and add pasta.  Refrigerate immediately, serve when cold.
