Bring a large pot of lightly salted water to a boil. Stir in rotini pasta and cook for 10 to 12 minutes or until al dente; drain.
Place bacon in a skillet over medium-high heat and cook until evenly brown. Drain and chop.
In a large bowl, mix mayonnaise, ranch dressing mix, garlic powder, and Ground black pepper. Stir in milk until smooth.
Place pasta, bacon, tomato, black olives and cheese in bowl and toss to coat with dressing.
*Cover and chill at least 1 hour in the refrigerator if serving chilled. Toss with additional milk if the salad seems a little dry.
(NOTE: You can also enjoy this pasta heated. It's delicious warm and chilled but my personal favorite is actually heated.)
