Bacon Pasta Salad

The other day I was contemplating pasta salad and the fact that I really wanted some. But I didn't have half of the ingredients for my mom's pasta salad so I decided to poke around and see what I did have. 

And bacon pasta salad was born. 

Make this. You will thank me later.

Bacon Pasta Salad

1 lb rotini pasta, cooked in salted and oiled water
12 strips of bacon, cooked, patted dry and chopped into very small pieces
¾ cup milk (I use 2%)
¾ cup light sour cream
¾ mayo
1 teaspoon garlic (preminced, jarred is preferred)
½ teaspoon onion powder
½ teaspoon salt
½ teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
¼ cup minced green onions

Cook pasta in salted and oiled water, according to package directions. Once cooked, drain, put in a large bowl and pour milk over it. Stir well.

Meanwhile, cook 12 strips of bacon on the stove top or in the oven. Once cooked, chop well.

Meanwhile, in a small bowl, whisk together sour cream, mayo, garlic, onion powders, salt, pepper and green onions.

Add bacon and sauce to pasta, stir to combine. Serve immediately and refrigerate leftovers.
