Fry the beacon on medium heat until evenly brown and chop it.

In a large bowl, mix mayonnaise, ranch dressing mix, garlic powder, and garlic pepper. Stir in milk until smooth.

Place rotini, bacon, tomato, black olives and cheese in bowl and toss to coat with dressing.

Cover and chill at least 1 hour in the refrigerator. Toss with additional milk if the salad seems a little dry.
