I found this recipe on a can of tomatoes. It tastes great right after it is made or even the next day. The addition of bacon adds a nice smokey flavor to this pasta salad. You could easily add some chopped cooked chicken and serve this on a bed of lettuce for a complete lunch.

I liked this --- I thought I would have a lot of pasta and tomatoes and not so much other stuff, but actually, it was fine! I don't care for salad dressing, but this bit of balsamic vinegar is lovely, and complements the salad well. This made very nice office lunches, thank you! Made for Alphabet tag game.
