Bacon Ranch Pasta Salad

I love suddenly salad, that bacon ranch kind.  However, it's so salty and full of junk! Here is a version not filled with that junk and packed with yummy veggies! Instead of using a package of ranch mix, I buy the container of hidden valley mix for about $7 a bottle at Costco, this saves a lot of money overtime!

1 lb pasta,  cooked, drained and cooled (I rinse with cold running water to speed up the process)
1/2-3/4 a package of cherry tomatoes halved or quartered
1 1/2 cups frozen peas,  defrosted
1 cucumber, peeled and diced

1 cup sour cream
1 cup mayonnaise
1 package ranch dressing mix (or 3 tablespoons from the large jar)
1/2 cup imitation bacon bits

Toss the first 4 ingredients in a large bowl. Mix the bottom 4 ingredients together in a separate bowl. Then add to the pasta mixture. Once it's mixed well, chill for at least an hour before serving!
