overall, it was a great and eaay dish to make. I wpuld definitely be adding more bacon and i did without the barbecue sauce.

wonderful salad! I used Bacon Ranch dressing instead of traditional ranch and it was amazing (and super easy).

Very easy to make and delicious. I felt like it could use some more dressing, but that’s just a personal preference!

I have an Uncle that is not a fan of pasta salads. I made this and my Aunt wanted the receipt, he loved it and so did we.

It's definitely a great side dish. I added a few more strips of bacon for good measure ;)

This is my new go-to pasta salad now! Works as an entree or a side, although I would recommend using more ranch than they call for (it probably depends on the kind of ranch you are using). 10/10 would recommend!

Very delicious! I think next time I will put sun-dried tomatoes in it instead of fresh tomatoes. I will make it again.
Turned into a mason jar salad! Dressing on the bottom, pasta the next layer, lettuce mixture next layer then topped with bacon! Took it for the lunch and was it was fantastic! Just dump, mix, and enjoy!

Great... very popular at get togethers.
It was excellent. I would definitely be making it again.
Took a little longer then 20 minutes, but good.

it was pretty great but would love to try with other salads
I did this with spinach instead of the romaine. I cooked the tomato and chicken together then added a small amount of Tuscan seasoning for flavor. My kids asked for thirds which is an overall improvement to them being picky eaters.

Very yummy! I went easy on the lettuce and used extra bacon and (baked) tomatoes. Not so good as leftovers.
