I clipped this from a magazine back in the early 80's. This is a great summer salad - or when wishing for summer during the long dreary days of winter. We prefer the broccoli raw, but can cook to your taste preferences.

Nice pasta salad. I did cook the broccoli as I was making it specifically with my 12 month old in mind. Broccoli is about the only veg I can get him to eat. Go figure. I added the tomatoes to the salad instead of serving on top of them and I omitted the cheese. We just didn't have any on hand. But I think it would a nice addition.

This pasta salad was just what I was looking for. I loved the broccoli in it and the fresh parsely was wonderful. I also added half of a green pepper for a little more crunch and loved the walnuts, that was a new one for me(having nuts in pasta salad) Everyone in the house loved it, even the kids! Thanks.

this was delicious, I loved the addition of the fresh parsley and dried basil, I used 1 teaspoon garlic powder in place of the fresh, all the flavors in this blend very well together which makes this a 5-star recipe, don't omit the walnuts they add so much extra to this salad, thanks for posting this Cindy it was thoroughly enjoyed by my family today!
