Add the diced bell peppers, diced tomatoes, and bite size pieces of broccoli to the bowl with the pasta.
Add the mayonnaise, and buttermilk to the bowl.
Add the salt, ground black pepper and dry Ranch Salad dressing mix to the bowl.
Alternately you can mix the buttermilk, mayo and one envelope of Hidden Valley® Original Ranch® Salad Dressing or Seasoning Mix together in a small bowl before adding to the pasta salad. Pour the dressing mix over the cooled pasta and vegetables before mixing.
Use a large spoon to mix the pasta salad ingredients until the dressing covers all the vegetables and pasta.
Refrigerate the pasta salad for at least 2 hours before serving. Overnight is best.
