Cool pasta salad for a hot summer day ...
This is one of those quick and easy suppers you can get on the table in a flash. Tom is a big fan of Bacon, Lettuce and Tomato sandwiches so this combination is a natural at our house. If you use the pre-cooked microwave bacon, it's even faster. Add a roll or a muffin and some fresh fruit and you're in business!
