Tortellini Salad with Tomato and Bacon

Pasta salad is one of the best side dishes, in my opinion. Of course, anything pasta related rates pretty high in my book! Add a cheese-filled pasta and it’s just…YUM. This twist on a traditional BLT pasta salad is sure to be a crowd-pleaser. If you want left-overs I suggest setting a little to the side before you share it.
