Chicken-Gorgonzola Pasta Salad

Inspiration:
My desire to recreate the pasta salad from D'Amico and Sons and this recipe.

Ingredients:
  • 1 lb. uncooked gobbetti or radiatore pasta
  • 4 cubed cooked chicken breasts
  • 1lb bacon, cooked and crumbled
  • 4 diced roma tomatoes
  • 2 cups fresh baby spinach leaves, lightly packed
  • 1 cup ranch dressing (more to taste)
  • 1 cup gorgonzola, crumbled (4 oz)

Instructions:
  1. Cook and drain pasta as directed on package.
  2. In a large bowl, mix cooked pasta, chicken, bacon, tomatoes and spinach.
  3. Pour dressing over pasta mixture, toss until coated.
  4. Fold in cheese.
  5. Cover and refrigerate until serving.

I am totally not a fan of pasta salad, but yours looks so good that I would eat it. :)

This looks wonderful and creamy (and I'm a sucker for gorgonzola cheese!) Thanks for sharing

But how close is it to D'amico? Cuz its my favorite salad and have been looking for the recipe for years. Maybe I'll give it a try just questioning the ranch.

Stupid question but - how many servings did this yield? It sounds like a LOT!
