I grew up on this pasta dish. It's one of my favorites that my Nanny (Grandma) used to make in the summer time. I love that it only requires 4 ingredients too! It's a great side dish to take to a picnic as well. I like this served cold, but you can also serve this warm.
Macaroni Salad w/ Tomatoes and Bacon
2 C. uncooked macaroni pasta
1 can diced tomatoes (or 2-3 fresh tomatoes diced)
1/4 C. sugar
1/2 C. crumbled bacon
Cook pasta according to directions and drain.
Put drained pasta in a large bowl
Add tomatoes (do not drain), sugar and bacon
Mix everything together
Chill or serve warm
(Some of my family members add tomato sauce to this too)
On a side note: Do you see the green plants growing in my garden? I'm so excited to have fresh tomatoes and peppers again I can hardly stand it! I absolutely LOVE fried green tomatoes! :)
