Cook the pasta in a large pot according to package instructions. While the pasta water is heating up, make the sauce. Place the bacon in a large skillet and cook over medium-low heat, stirring occasionally, until crisp, 8 minutes.

Transfer to a paper-towel lined plate, discard the drippings but leave browned bits in the pan. BLT Pasta Salad is a creamy pasta salad full of crispy bacon pieces, tomatoes, and chopped Romaine lettuce. It’s one of my favorite summer pasta salads.

Goes great with burgers, hot dogs, or grilled chicken. If you love a summertime BLT sandwich, you can’t go wrong with this creamy pasta salad. BLT Pasta Salad is a delicious take on your favorite BLT Sandwich. It is a cold dish that has all your favorite flavors of the sandwich in salad form.

It is crunchy and creamy because of the crisp tomatoes and romaine, crunchy bacon bits and the delicious ranch dressing. This BLT Bowtie Pasta Salad is peeeerfect for bringing to a summer potluck, serving alongside hamburgers, or as a meal all by itself! I don’t know about you, but I LOVE the flavors of BLT this time of year. Well, any time of the year, to. Bring a large pot of lightly salted water to a boil.

Add the pasta, and cook until tender, about 8 minutes. Drain, and rinse under cold water to cool. This BLT Pasta Salad is such a fun twist on the traditional pasta salad. It’s loaded with bacon, tomatoes, and green onions for a flavor everyone loves!

This BLT Pasta Salad takes one of our favorite summer time sandwiches, the BLT, and puts all the flavors into a salad. Who can pass up a BLT sandwich with a fresh from the garden, still warm from the sun, tomato on it? I think this pasta dish is a fun way to enjoy those traditional flavors and feed a crowd at the same time.

DIRECTIONS Combine mayonnaise, lemon juice, sugar and bouillon for the dressing. Combine rotini, bacon, tomato, and green onion. I recommend.

BLT Pasta Salad “I make this easy salad for lots of potlucks and always come home with an empty dish,” writes Ellie Marsh from Lewistown, Pennsylvania.

  • Theses are the best pasta salads.
    I ‘ve made a big bowl of this so my family and I wouldn’t have to eat at greasy spoon joints when traveling. Quick, healthy and filling.
    People would ask. ” where did you get that”? LOL.

  • After looking at the caprese pasta a gazillion times I finally made it. I’ve never eaten pesto, tortellini, nor fresh basil. But I’m eating it now and it came our fantastic, thank you so much for introducing me to something new

  • I love your presentation. The video itself shows the ideas and what they look like. The exact recipe and proportions are in the description. No need to pause, play, pause play.

  • Hey there u just gave me an idea for a new salad for my charcoal chicken shop thanks. And love the show u just became my new guru for food ideas keep up the good food cheers.

  • Hi! Thanks for this great video!!
    I love your pasta salad recipes!
    It’s so nice to have new and delicious
    variations on a pasta salad!

  • It’s so funny how you rinsed the pasta in this video and a few months later you say you don’t understand, why people rinse it, in disapproval ��

    Haha, love your channel! Awesome recipes. Tried your vegetarian chili and it’s a hit in my family again and again <3

  • Hey! The BLT Pasta Salad made my mouth water. When I went on Vacation I saw something similar (Caeser) Pasta Salad. When I came back I made a few videos on how to make them. It would make my day (even week) if you watched those videos and commented. They are called “How to Make Caeser Pasta Salad.” Thanks! <3

  • Oh my, these are super easy to make, looks delicious, I am so sure that today since I have guests coming by to eat Carribean food, I am going to make the BLT salad!!!

  • about boiling water… most Europeans I know (me included) actually own an electric kettle for boiling water. not only is it useful for tea and coffee, but also for cooking pasta! warming up a liter or more of cold water on the stove alone uses up A LOT of energy.

  • When I ran a food truck, we did a lot of catering, as two of my partners were formally trained and experienced chefs in NYC. And one little hors d’oeuvre we came up were BLT bites. we’d hollow out a cherry tomato and give it a bottom to sit on, then stuffed it with shredded romaine and crispy bacon bits, topped with sriracha mayo. They were so good and tasted so much like a BLT that I can imagine this does the same. Good stuff Bud!

  • You might want to try blanching the broccoli before adding to the pasta. This will make it more tender and help it absorb the flavor of the dressing.

  • THANK YOU!! made this for my brother and I to bring to school and it was SO good!! My little brother is very picky with food and usually doesn’t finish what I make him, but when I sent him this he finished the whole thing!! All I added were some bell peppers, a pinch of salt, and some red pepper flakes (I like my food spicy) it was amazing!! Totally will make again.

  • Defiantly giving this a try, it’s going to make a lovely addition to my Jurassic Buffet in honor of Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom.

  • thanks for the recipe… I made this for a pot luck at work and I wad the talk of the building… everyone kept coming to my cubicle afterwards to ask me how I made this delicious salad… I told them to watch your videos:)

  • Hello, I bought all the ingredients for this pasta and I can’t wait to make them and take them to the beach. Thank you for the idea. i love bacon, so this is great!

  • Great recipe… I love all your recipes.. But I have a humble request can you show some light summer salads and soups or perhaps some bbq ribs in oven..
    Would really appreciate that..

  • The simplicity of your videos makes it so much LESS overwhelming. I now look forward to cooking. Make at least 2 of your recipes every week and can’t wait to make more! Thank you!

  • i honestly don’t know what i’d do without this woman. most likely starve to death. i love clear and precise your directions are and that you’re so visual in explaining it. very helpful for those who learn better visually.

  • I absolutely ♥ all of your videos ivr been wanting to start making different kinds of food and you have a variety of great things.!! You inspired me to try these recipes out!! Thank you so much.!!
    P.s your son is the cutest little boy ♥(:

  • You should really try to respond to your youtube viewers. T mobile video was not a good idea, just my opinion. We should not have to go to another website to get measurments either. You do make yummy looking food.

  • Thanks for the dish, I made this for my hubby and he ate all of it! It was so fast, quick and DELish! I was told by my great aunt if u cook with Dukes…you can cook! Thanks again..Subbed! ;0)

  • I was already enjoying your videos and making a list of ones to pull the recipes for to try and BAM! Dukes mayo!

  • Made this for the 4th omg Becky! It is so freaking good. I was a bit nervous making this since I’m not a fan of ranch dressing and raw broccoli. I forced myself to follow the recipe exactly, well mostly, I ended up adding some havarti cheese. So yummy. Oh and I don’t know why you are hating on the left overs cuz they are even better.

  • Thank you so soooo much! This recipe seems easy and I cant wait to try it tomorrow! I tried your Mexican Pinwheels and it was so yummy! -33

  • I just love your voice, your delivery, your style, your candidness and fun attitude, Keep up the good work! And have a blessed day!:D

  • OMG I just found your channel and watched a bunch of your videos. I have to say I have loved each and every one so far. You are awesome!

  • I loved it I substituted the letter with spinach and the Caesar dressing the ranch I also had a little bit of chicken it was delicious thank you so much

  • You’re a wonderful sister! reminded me of when I used to set up my mother’s table for breakfast just for my brother and me and make him breakfast, I’d pour milk into a small pitch just so it’d look nice lol (I was young and didn’t know how to cook and breakfast was always easy) This is when I discovered I loved cooking. Memories. Don’t change!!:)

  • I made this today and omg it was so delicious the only thing i didn’t use was pork because i don’t eat pork so i used chicken and omg yummm^.^ ty for the wonderful recipe u got a new subscriber:)

  • My son wants homemade strawberry cupcakes with homemade strawberry frosting (we had at a funeral luncheon) he absolutely loved it but nothing I’ve found has come close. If you ever get inspired for these, I would be eternally grateful. Love your videos:)

  • i really like how customizable this recipe is. for example, i hate tomatoes and this i feel i can easily leave it out and still have tons of flavor.

  • Pretty good! It’s not as fresh and crunchy as the first day since it’s sat overnight, but I just nailed the rest of it this morning and it was still the bomb.

  • I know this is random but I’m on the Atkins diet and I’m having a hard time trying to make quick dinners on the induction phase. Would you be able to do any Atkins friendly dinner tutorials?

  • I’m 18 and often have to cook for my little brother…I love using your recipes! They’re so delicious! Your kids are lucky to have a mom with good taste in food haha (:

  • This looks wonderful, Rosie! I’m extremely picky about pasta salad, but I’m definitely going to try your recipe. Only thing, I don’t care for Miracle Whip, so I’ll swap with regular mayo. Let me know if you think I need to add a little sugar. Thanks!
