"This is something I threw together one day. Prepare the veggies while the pasta cooks and you're done in 10 minutes. I use different kinds of tomatoes, depending on what I have on hand. Cherry or grape tomatoes are easy to just throw in - no cutting required."

uncooked rotini pasta
avocado - peeled, pitted and diced
crumbled cooked bacon
My boyfriend and I love this recipe. We added black olives and left out the avocado, only because we did not have one. We used turkey bacon too and it was fabulous. My 5 year old loves is also a fan!!! Great recipe Sarah.
I followed the recipe exactly... and it was just off. My husband and I even tried it the next day with more dressing... no go. Just no flavor. Very dry.
I was loving the idea of this salad. It wasn't as good as I had hoped though.
So easy, and pretty good. You could easily add lettuce (or basil--one of my favorite herbs!) and make this into a BLT pasta salad. I'd serve this immediately unless you want to keep adding ranch dressing--I made it a few hours ahead of time, and when we were ready to eat it was pretty dry so I added more ranch dressing. It is a bit bland--bf and I were adding salt and pepper at the table. He does that a lot but I generally dont, so I'd add salt and pepper prior to serving next time. Chives or green onions might be nice in this too. thanks for the recipe!
