This was terrific! The only thing I would add is another tablespoon of skim milk, salt and pepper. I did use 1/8 tsp. of garlic powder instead of fresh because I don't like the raw taste of garlic. I also had to substitute thawed frozen broccoli florets, regular tomato for plum and 1 tsp. dried basil for fresh because I didn't have the called for ingredients, but it was still good. I agree that the Parmesan in the dressing really sets it above most pasta salads. I love it's great taste and low calorie count. I'm going to be making this a lot since I found it. Thanks so much, Carolinafan, for submitting this recipe.
