Homemade Mock Suddenly Salad With Schwan's Bow Tie Pasta Blend

While I do adore cooking, I also love recipes that are easy to make, recipes the entire family will enjoy, recipes that use few ingredients, and recipes that are still healthy. I also love salads of all kinds, especially pasta salads. In our family one of the favorites since my kids were little has been Suddenly Salad by Betty Crocker. I have discovered a way to make my own homemade version of Suddenly Salad using the Bow Tie Pasta Blend from Schwan's that is healthier, less expensive, and tastes a lot better in my opinion. My family thinks so as well! 



If you read my article with the recipe for 5 Ingredient Easy Peasy Salad you already know I am not much for measuring ingredients because everything in my book is "to taste". However, I will give you an idea of how much I used of each item in the following Mock Suddenly Salad recipe. 


What You Need: 

1 2lb Bag Bow Tie Pasta Mix from Schwan's (serves 8)
1 Cup Shredded Cheese 
2 Cups Croutons (crushed)
1/2 Cup Mayo
1/2 Cup Caesar or Creamy Italian Dressing 
3 Teaspoons of Mixed Garden Herbs
1 Tablespoon Sugar (optional)
Salt and Pepper (optional)
