Pasta salad is one of my favourite side dishes but I don’t like most of those boring premade ones from the grocery store.

For this pasta salad I wanted to use bacon ( because everything is better with bacon!) and Sweet Chili Thai sauce because I love that sweet heat.

To make my salad I started by boiling some macaroni.

Once the macaroni was cooked I drained it and rinsed it with cold water to cool it off.

I left the macaroni to dry a bit while I chopped some red peppers, green onions and yellow onions.

In a large mixing bowl I combined the macaroni with the chopped vegetables, some real bacon bits and slivered almonds.

I added some mayo and sweet chili sauce, salt and pepper and stirred it all together really well.

I covered the bowl and put the macaroni salad in the fridge to chill for two hours before serving so that the macaroni had time to really absorb all the flavours.
