Marie's Bacon and Tomato Pasta Salad


All the flavors of my favorite tomato bite appetizers in a pasta salad.  Scrummy yummy!  

1/2 pound of fussilli pasta (8 ounces)
4 to 5 spring onions, washed, trimmed and chopped
2 cups of cherry tomatoes, washed and halved 
2 stalks celery, trimmed and diced
1 pound of  bacon, cooked, drained and crumbled
1 cup good quality mayonnaise 
1/4 cup blue cheese dressing 
2  tablespoons cider vinegar
1 tablespoon sugar
salt and black pepper to taste
chopped parsley to garnish  


Cook your pasta according to the package directions.  Drain well.  Rinse in cold water and drain again.  Set aside.
































Whisk the mayonnaise, blue cheese dressing, vinegar, sugar, salt and pepper together in a serving bowl.   Stir in the spring onions.   Add the cooked pasta and cherry tomatoes.  Toss to coat well.   

Cover and chill for at least an hour.   Remove and stir in 3/4 of the bacon.  Sprinkle the remainder on top along with some chopped fresh parsley.   Serve.
