  1. Cook the bacon until crisp; set aside on a paper towel. Crumble when cooled.
  2. Cook pasta according to package directions; strain and cool. (You may need to run water over the pasta to prevent sticking.)
  3. In a small bowl, add the mayonnaise, lemon, salt, garlic powder, pepper and 1 Tbsp. dill.
  4. In a large bowl, add the cooled pasta, tomatoes, and peas. Toss to combine.
  5. Add the dressing to the mixture; toss gently and refrigerate for 30 minutes.
  6. Add in avocados right before serving. Garnish with remaining fresh dill and serve!
