Prepare pasta according to package directions. Drain and run under cold water until cool. Set aside.
In a small bowl whisk together the mayonnaise and water. We are adding the water to thin the mayonnaise out slightly so it distributes better amongst the ingredients. Give your Pepper mill a few good turns over the mayonnaise and whisk it in until the dressing is smooth.
Place the cooled pasta in a large bowl. Add the tomatoes, bacon and mayonnaise mixture. Fold all together using a spatula.
Give your pepper mill another few good turns over all the ingredients and stir. Place the pasta salad in a covered container and chill for 30 to 40 minutes prior to serving.
