Kid Friendly Pasta Salad
12 ounces fun-shaped pasta, such as radiator
8 slices thin bacon
3/4 cup mayonnaise
1/4 cup whole milk (I used 2%)
4 tablespoons white vinegar
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 cup sugar
10 ounces grape tomatoes, halved lengthwise
1/2 pound Cheddar, cut into small cubes
3 green onions, thinly sliced
Ground black pepper
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 in a small bowl.
Stir together the pasta, dressing, tomatoes, bacon, cheese and green onions in a large mixing bowl. Taste for seasonings, adding more salt and pepper if needed.
