Bacon Ranch Pasta Salad

Everyone thought it would be nice to have potato salad with our barbecued ribs on the 4th, but we were out of potatoes. (Wayne wants to know how you run out of potatoes!) Rather than run to the store, we decided that pasta salad would work. Here's the one we tried. 3 out of 4 of us liked it. I guess next time we feel like barbecuing we'll have to plan ahead and have potatoes in the pantry.
Becky's Bacon Pasta Salad

16 oz. small shell (or different type) pasta
3/4 cup ranch salad dressing
1/4 cup sour cream
1/2 cup green peas
1/3 cup cooked, crumbled bacon
