Directions Step-By-Step

1
Cook the pasta in a large pot of salted boiling water as the label directs. I add thyme, rosemary, garlic and oil. Drain and rinse with cold water.
2
Meanwhile, cook the bacon in a large skillet over medium-high heat until crisp. Drain on paper towels. Crumble bacon into bite-sized pieces; set aside. Keeping 1/4 of a cup to garnish. Discard all but 3 tablespoons drippings from the pan.
3
Mix the mayonnaise and Greek yogurt with the pasta until evenly combined. Season with salt and pepper. Toss with the lettuce and cut up tomatoes coating completely.
4
Once bacon is cool toss in all but 1/4 cup mixing up and coating all the ingredients. Garnish with sprigs of Rosemary, Thyme and the 1/4 cup of bacon.
