I love pasta salad but for some reason I don’t make it nearly as much as I should. (Or would like.) I’m not sure why because it’s so easy and perfect to have in the fridge. I can take a bowl of it to work for lunch and as is right in the world. =o)
Cook the pasta according to package directions to al dente. You don’t want mushy pasta!
Drain pasta, toss with dressing to lightly coat so they don’t stick together and refrigerate until cold.
In a large bowl toss the cold pasta with the tomatoes, Swiss, onions, bacon and lettuce.
Add enough dressing to generously coat everything and season to taste with salt and pepper.
