12 oz
corkscrew-shaped pasta
1/2 c
1 lb
lean bacon
3 medium
ripe tomatoes cut into chunks
1 Tbsp
fresh thyme
1 clove
salt & pepper to taste
1/2 c
mayonnaise, fat-free
1/4 c
sour cream, fat-free
4 Tbsp
cut green scallions
5 c
chopped romaine hearts
heads of lettuce washed and quartered

Directions Step-By-Step

Cook the pasta in a large pot of salted boiling water as the label directs. Drain and toss with the milk in a large bowl; set aside.

Meanwhile, cook the bacon in a large skillet over medium-high heat until crisp. Drain on paper towels. Discard all but 3 tablespoons drippings from the pan. Add the tomatoes, thyme and garlic to the pan and toss until warmed through; season with salt and pepper. Crumble the bacon into bite-size pieces; set aside 1/4 cup for garnish. Toss the remaining bacon and the tomato mixture with the pasta.

Mix the mayonnaise, sour cream and 3 tablespoons chives with the pasta until evenly combined. Season with salt and pepper. Add the lettuce; toss again to coat. Garnish with the reserved bacon and the remaining 1 tablespoon chives. Serve at room temperature.
