BLT mac salad

We were just at my brother's for a few days, enjoying the last days of summer before all the kids head back to school.  We had a great time at their pool, riding bikes along the farm lane and through town, and just hanging out.  My sister-in-law doesn't grill and had some chicken to cook for dinner Monday night.  Since David doesn't get home from work until it's too late to grill, I made dinner for us.  I grilled the chicken and made BLT Pasta salad.  We had some other sides to go along with the chicken and salad.  This recipe came from the wrapping of one of those fancy packages of pasta from The Pasta Shoppe.

1 box of pasta (any shape)
2 or 3 tomatoes, chopped
2 green pepper, chopped
5 or 6 strips of bacon, cooked crisp and chopped
salt and pepper

Cook the pasta to al dente.  When it's cooked, drain and run under cool water.  Add the tomatoes and green pepper, toss, then add mayo.  Put in the fridge to chill.  Just before serving, add the bacon and season to taste.

The amounts of tomatoes and green pepper can be adjusted to taste, add more or less as you like.
