Ranch BLT Pasta Salad

Ingredients:

1 + 1/2 cup diced tomatoes, seeds removed
1 cup cubed Swiss cheese
1/2 cup thinly sliced red onions
1 pound bacon, cooked crispy and chopped
2 cups finely chopped romaine or iceberg lettuce
coarse salt and fresh black pepper

Instructions:

  1. Cook the pasta according to package directions to al dente in plenty of salted water.
  2. Drain pasta, toss with dressing to lightly coat so they don’t stick together and refrigerate until cold.
  3. In a large bowl toss the cold pasta with the tomatoes, Swiss, onions, bacon and lettuce.
  4. Add enough dressing to generously coat everything and season to taste with salt and pepper.
