Avocado Pasta Salad

This yummy pasta salad contains all of my favorites, fresh juicy cherry tomatoes, crispy bacon and deliciously creamy avocados!  However, the best part of this recipe is the luscious avocado dressing…  full of flavor and silky smooth!  To make this a main dish we sometimes add chopped grilled or rotisserie chicken.
