Cowboy Pasta Salad

This Cowboy Pasta Salad is so hearty that it is more like a meal than a salad. Pasta that is loaded with ground beef, bacon, tomatoes, corn, cheese, and coated with a creamy barbecue dressing. Take this salad to the next cookout and people will love it!

Cowboy Pasta Salad


1 pound pasta (I use shells)

1 pound cooked ground beef

1/2 pound cooked bacon, crumbled

1 cup shredded cheddar cheese

1 cup frozen corn, thawed

1 cup grape tomatoes, quartered

1/4 cup green onion, chopped


1 cup mayonnaise

2 tbsp barbecue sauce

2 tbsp spicy brown mustard

1 tbsp hot sauce

1 tsp worcestershire sauce


In a large bowl combine all the salad ingredients. In a separate bowl combine all the dressing ingredients and stir. Pour dressing over salad and stir until everything is coated. If you like a lot of dressing you can make a double recipe.
