    HEP MEP's Note:

    An extremely easy pasta salad from Kraft Foods. You can substitute or add any other ingredients you like. I sometimes add cubed mozzarella, Parmesan and fresh chicken. I'm making it today with cheese tortellini. This is my potluck "staple" in the summertime. Time does not include chill time.

      Easy to make and, boy, is it tasty! I made this for the MEP cookathon almost as written. Didn't bother blanching the broccoli since we like it crunchy raw. For the color, I threw in a hand full of grape tomatoes because the red pepper I bought was moldy inside. !!! I'll be making more of MEP's recipes soon.

      Loved this! I made it exactly as written other than using two grilled chicken breasts in place of the pre-cooked bagged strips. My DH says this is a keeper. I followed MEP'S posts on Zaar for years and will miss her.

      I made this a few days ago for the MEP cookathon. It was so good, though I am going to use fresh broccoli next time. I used frozen, because that is all I had, and I had a craving for this delicious salad. It turned out wonderful, even with the frozen broccoli. Thank you, MEP. You will be missed! I made this again, but I used fresh broccoli and regular pasta. It came out and tasted sooooo much better. I am adding two new photos. Thank you, MEP, for your great recipes and being you! ;)
