Zesty BLT Pasta Salad

Nor M.


I love BLT Pasta salad. I was buying from the del for $8.00 a quart. I thought I would create my own BLT Pasta salad. My family enjoyed it very much. We all had 2nd's and 3rd's. It is a great side dish to serve along with Bbq chicken, steak, ribs, and burgers. Enjoy all!
