Putting tomatoes and pasta together is a natural pairing in most instances but I don't think I've ever had it in a cold salad before. It sounds lovely though, especially if the tomatoes are nice and juicy! The first thing I thought of after reading this recipe is why not a BLT pasta salad...I mean it's already got most of the ingredients needed. Just add some bite-size pieces of bacon and instead of lettuce, the pasta happily agrees to takes its place and all is good in the world.

I clicked on this recipe expecting a Red White and Blue macaroni Salad, and instead got sent to a Tomato Macaroni, i'm confused??

My family loves it with cucumbers,tuna and peas along with the tomato's minus the sour cream. You can serve it as a meal or as a side.
