BLT Pasta Salad

Standard

Pasta salad makes for a great appetizer or picnic food and since I was going on a road trip, I thought this would be perfect to make! It’s VERY easy and mixes easily in one bowl.

Ingredients:
*2 cups Ditalini or elbow pasta
*2 tablespoons olive oil, divided
*12 slices bacon (1 package), chopped
*1-1/2 cups diced tomatoes
* 3 cups chopped green lettuce
*1 cup mayonnaise
*1/4 cup plain Greek yogurt
*1- 1/2 cups sharp cheddar cheese, shredded
*1/2 teaspoon red pepper flakes (optional)
