BLT Pasta Salad

Box of Mezzi Rigatoni Pasta (or your favorite type)
6 Slices of Cooked Crispy Bacon
2 Large, Ripe Tomatoes, Diced Small
4 Tbsp. of Mayonnaise
Salt and Freshly Ground Pepper, to taste
2 Cups of Fresh Spinach, Stemmed and Roughly Torn

Combine chopped tomatoes, along with accumulated juices, and mix together with Mayonnaise in a large bowel. Add rinsed, cooled pasta and spinach.  Mix together and sprinkle with bacon.  Salt & Pepper to taste.

This is still good when it sits in the fridge overnite.  If it dries out a bit, add a smidge of skim milk to it...

This is my “man” version of this recipe.  You can make it so much lighter & healthier, using whole-wheat pasta, turkey bacon, lite mayo and/or greek yogurt.  It is a solid recipe for weeknite meals, bbq’s or a covered dish occasion. Enjoy!

Thank you for visiting!
