BLT Pasta Salad

BLT Patsa Salad: Savory Sweet and Satisfying

This salad has all the goodness of a BLT, except in place of bread there is pasta. Initially this salad is served room temperature, but if there are any leftovers they need to be refrigerated, and I think the cold leftovers taste just as good as it tasted freshly made. Making it a delicious salad perfect for the summer months.

12 ounces rotini pasta
1/2 cup milk
1/3 cup light mayonnaise
