Shrimp/Crab Louie Pasta Salad

I had this salad at Grandma's & Grandpa Rays house the other day and loved it so much that I have made it twice since then.  It is the perfect summer salad.  I personally do not like shrimp so much so I use crab instead of the shrimp.  This serves 6-8 people.

3 cups spiral shaped pasta, uncooked
1 cup mayonnaise (the real stuff)
1/2 cup ranch dressing
1/3 cup seafood cocktail sauce
2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
salt and pepper
1 lb medium cooked shrimp, peeled & deveined
1/2 cup chopped fresh tomato
1/2 cup sliced green onion
1/4 cup chopped sweet red pepper
2 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley

Cook pasta according to package directions; drain.
Rinse with cold water to cool quickly; drain well.
Meanwhile, in a large bowl, whisk together mayonnaise, ranch dressing, seafood cocktail sauce,lemon juice, Worcestershire sauce and salt& pepper.
Stir in cooled pasta and remaining ingredients.

Serve immediately or cover and refrigerate.
