BLT Pasta Salad

Ok, it's not a BLT because there's spinach in there instead of lettuce but BST just doesn't seem right.  Besides, it tastes like a BLT. 
We all know that anything with bacon is just fabulous especially if it was grown out back.  It's the perfect summertime salad.  You've got to try it.

Grab a bowl & let's go...

1 package cooked spiral pasta
4 slices cooked bacon, chopped
handful of spinach leaves, chopped
cherry tomatoes, chopped
1/2 sweet onion, chopped
tiny cubes of colby/jack cheese, yes, chop that too.

In a cup, wisk 1/2 cup Paul Newmans Italian Dressing
 (no other kind will do)
with a large spoonful of mayo.
Pour on pasta and stir.
I just love BLTs anyway they come!


  1. That looks REALLY good! I like BLTs anyway they come too! :)


  2. YUM! Definitely trying this right away!

  3. Sounds and looks great. I am going to have to try that soon. I think I saw that pasta on the stove yesterday when we dropped by to get some eggs. ;-)

  4. Mmmmm - looks great!

    We've had a few garden fresh tomatoes - they are sooooo good!

  5. Sounds divine! Will have to try that ASAP!

  6. Kim this sounds wonderful...I think I'm going to give it a try over the weekend as it's fast and easy and I'll need it after mowing. I hope you've been getting some rain and cooler temperatures this week. It's been HOT here especially today but tomorrow will only be in the 80's and mostly cloudy with a chance of storms. It will be a nice change from this terrible hot summer. Stay cool.
    Maura :)

  7. Thanks for the recipe. I can't wait to try it!

  8. I hate salads, but that look wonderful. Plus, Paul Newman WHOOHOO! Oh just the dressing. I'm sure that is good too.


So what do you think of that?
