Prep Time 25 minutes
Cook Time 8 minutes
Total Time 33 minutes
Servings 8 people


  • 1 box tri-color rotini pasta
  • 1/2 cup chopped onion
  • 1 cup chopped brocolli
  • 1 cup grape tomatoes (halved)
  • 2 hard-boiled eggs (diced)
  • 2 cups favorite Ranch dressing (we use Hidden Valley lite)


  1. Cook pasta according to package instructions. Salt the pasta water so the noodles have some flavor. Drain the pasta and rinse under cold water.

  2. While pasta is cooking, chop the vegetables.

  3. In a bowl combine the cooled pasta, broccoli, onions, tomatoes, chopped hard-boiled eggs, and ranch dressing. Stir together until well combined.

  4. Refrigerate for 1-2 hours before serving. The pasta may dry out a bit in the fridge. Just add some additional dressing and give it a good stir before serving.
