BLT Pasta Salad

This is quick, easy and absolutely delicious!  The dressing goes perfect with it and I just love the crunch from the green onions.  Great dish!  Enjoy!
Ingredients:
For salad:
-16 oz garden rotini pasta
-1/2 cup milk
-16 oz bacon
-6 Roma tomatoes, chopped
-1 garlic clove, finely minced
-salt and pepper, to taste
-5 cups romaine lettuce, torn into bite size pieces
-2 green onions, chopped, for topping
For dressing:
-1 cup mayonnaise
-1/2 cup sour cream
-6 green onions, chopped
Directions:
Cook the pasta according to the package directions.  Drain and stir in the milk.  Mix well and set into a large salad bowl. 
Meanwhile, chop the bacon and cook in large skillet, until nice and crisp.  Remove bacon pieces on to a plate lined with paper towels. 
Keep about 3 Tbs of the bacon grease in the skillet, and drain the rest.  To the hot skillet with the bacon drippings, add the tomatoes and garlic.  Season with salt and pepper, and cook for about 3 minutes.  Remove from the heat and add to the pasta.  Mix well.
Combine the dressing ingredients until well blended.
To serve, place some lettuce onto a plate.  Top with some pasta bacon mix, then spoon a little dressing.  Top with a little chopped green onions.  Enjoy!
