Blogger's Recipe Roundup- BLT Pasta Salad

BLT Pasta Salad by Julie from Julie's Food Love

My dear friends, Andrea and Bill, have a huge garden every year.  Last year they planted 47 tomato plants.  They are generous with their tomatoes.  Andrea also shared this recipe with me.  It's a great way to use up some of those delicious fresh tomatoes.

This recipe makes a lot.  I double it for family events but I have a HUGE family.  So unless you have a HUGE family (and a HUGE bowl), I'd stick with the original recipe.

BLT Pasta Salad
1 package (16 oz) wagon wheel pasta
1 pound bacon, cooked and crumbled or chopped
4 ripe plum tomatoes, halved then sliced
3 cups chopped romaine lettuce

1/2 cup mayonnaise
2 T. cider vinegar
1 tsp. sugar
1/2 tsp. salt
1/4 tsp. pepper

Cook pasta according to package directions, al dente is best.  Rinse under cold water and set aside to drain.  In a large bowl combine pasta, bacon, tomatoes and lettuce.

In a separate small bowl, mix dressing ingredients until smooth.
Pour over pasta mixture and toss to coat.

Serve Immediately.
