This Bacon Lettuce Tomato Pasta Salad is one of my favorite salad recipes of all time. You can make it lighter by using a Greek based dressing if you like.

Is made with fresh romaine lettuce, bacon, green onions, bowtie pasta, baby tomatoes and is tossed in a healthy ranch dressing.

You can serve this as a side dish at any potluck or as the main course if you choose.

I highly recommend using multi colored baby tomatoes in this salad, it gives it that extra special flavor and looks so pretty. 

Also be sure to look for a good quality bacon the less fat the better.

I like to make and enjoy my pasta salads all summer long and this one is up there on the list of my top 10 favorites. 

Nothing says summer to me more than a fresh salad made with baby tomatoes from either my garden.

Feel free to add a pre-cooked shredded chicken breast to this salad along with the bacon if desired.

I sometimes will do that when serving this for dinner to guests, however if it’s just me and my partner then we like to have it just like this.

Bacon Lettuce Tomato Pasta Salad

BLT PASTA SALAD

Yield: 4

Only the best 

Ingredients

  • 1 bunch Romaine Lettuce
  • 3 cups Bowtie pasta
  • 2 springs Green Onions
  • 1 pack Bacon "Antibiotics & Hormone" free
  • 1 small package Multicolored Baby Tomatoes
  • DRESSING
  • 1/2 cup Greek Yogurt Ranch Dressing

Instructions

  1. Pick a Ranch Dressing of choice, or make your own if prefered. I like to use Greek Yogurt ranch dressing, and have also tried "The Pioneer Woman's" dressing. It is very good and just a bit higher in calories than the greek one I use.

TO MAKE THE BLT PASTA SALAD:

  1. In a large stock pot add some salt and bring the water to a rapid bowl. Once the water is boiling add in the bow tie pasta, and turn the heat down to medium and cook till tender.
  2. Meanwhile, in a large skillet fry the bacon till crispy but not burned. Pat the bacon dry with a paper towel and set aside to cool.
  3. Now, wash your lettuce and drain. Tear apart and drain again, then place in a large bowl.
  4. On a cutting board, slice the green onions, and baby tomatoes in half. Once the bacon as cooled, chop that up and set aside. Once the pasta has cooked, strain and set aside.
  5. Once the pasta has cooled, add it to the bowl with the shredded lettuce.
  6. Add in the chopped bacon, sliced baby tomatoes and green onions. Then our your favorite "Ranch Dressing" overtop and give everything a big toss. Serve and enjoy!
