Try a New Recipe Tuesday~Broccoli Pasta Salad


I got this recipe from my Mom.  It's a spin on the traditional Broccoli Raisin salad, with the addition of pasta and a few other things.

Broccoli Pasta Salad
1 cup bow tie pasta, uncooked
6 cups small broccoli florets
1 small red onion, chopped
1 yellow pepper, chopped
6 slices cooked, crumbled bacon
1 cup mayonnaise
1 Tablespoon sugar

*Cook pasta in large saucepan as directed on package, omitting salt and adding broccoli to the boiling water the last minute of cooking, drain.  Rinse with cold water, drain again.
*Place pasta mixture in large bowl. Add onions, pepper, and bacon, mix lightly.
*Mix remaining ingredients (mayo and sugar) until blended. Add to salad, toss to coat.
*Refrigerate at least one hour.
