Kid-Friendly Pasta Salad
Total: 35 min
Active: 15 min
Yield: 8 servings
12 ounces fun-shaped pasta, such as radiatore
8 slices thin bacon
1/2 cup mayonnaise
1/2 cup whole milk
4 tablespoons white vinegar
1/2 teaspoon salt
Dash sugar, optional
10 ounces grape tomatoes (yellow and red), halved lengthwise
1/2 pound Cheddar, cut into small cubes
3 green onions, thinly sliced
Ground black pepper
24 whole basil leaves, chiffonade
Cook the pasta according to the packet instructions. Then drain and rinse in cold water until cool. Set aside.
Cut the bacon into 1/2-inch pieces and throw into a large skillet. Saute until slightly crisp, and then remove to a paper-towel-lined-plate.
For the dressing, mix the mayonnaise, milk, vinegar, salt, and sugar if using in a small bowl.
Stir together the pasta, dressing, tomatoes, bacon, Cheddar and green onions in a large mixing bowl. Taste for seasonings, adding more salt and pepper if needed.
Stir in the basil at the end.
