1/2 lb. bacon
2 large tomatos, chopped
1/3 c small bell pepper, diced

1 cup mayonnaise
1 pkg dry ranch salad dressing mix
1/2 cup milk

Bring a large pot of lightly salted water to a boil. Stir in rotini pasta and cook for 10 to 12 minutes or until al dente; drain.

Place bacon in a skillet over medium-high heat and cook until evenly brown. Drain and chop.
