This BLT Pasta Salad is like a BLT Sandwich without the bread! It includes bacon, lettuce and tomato mixed in with bowtie noodles and lettuce topped with creamy ranch dressing. From overthebigmoon.com!
Bring a large pot of salted water to boil and add pasta and cook until al dente. Drain and rinse with cold water. Allow the noodles to cool completely.
While the noodles are boiling, cook your 8 pieces of bacon in the oven according to the directions on the package. You are also welcome to fry them on the stove. But, I like how easy to clean up is when I do it in the oven!
While the bacon and noodles are cooking, chop up your tomatoes and red onion.
Combine, the cooled noodles, romaine lettuce, bacon, lettuce and red onions.
Combine the ranch dressing, sour cream, mayonnaise, garlic powder, onion powder and apple cider vinegar and mix.
Poor half the dressing over the salad and softly mix the salad to cover it with the dressing. Continue to add as much dressing as you desire.
