Southwest BBQ Pasta Salad
1/2 cup Rancher's dressing
3 tbsp Bullseye BBQ sauce
4 cups pasta (the recipe originally called for macaroni, but I prefer to use the small short tubed pasta, like Ditalini.)
1 can black beans rinsed
2 tomatoes chopped (optional, but if you use it, add tomatoes just prior to serving)
1 orange, red or yellow pepper (I always use red)finely chopped
4 green onions finely chopped, or shallots, or onions
*can add grilled chicken or chapped ham, but I do not.
Mix dressing and bbq sauce in large bowl
Add remaining ingredients and mix lightly
Refrigerate for a few hours (if you leave it over night, the tastes mingle better and become more potent.)
Toss again before serving
