Italian Pasta Salad



1 package of bowtie pasta
broccoli florets- bite size pieces
pepperoni- I like to use the mini size
sliced olives
mozzarella cheese-cubed(or just slice up string cheese)
cherry tomatoes
your favorite italian dressing-(I like the Good Seasonings dry packets)

Boil the pasta according to the package directions. Drain and rinse with cold water to stop cooking. Add to the bowl, the broccoli florets, pepperoni, olives, cheese, and tomatoes. Toss with your favorite italian dressing. Remember the pasta will soak in some of the dressing so use a little more that you think, or add some right before serving. Chill and enjoy!
