This is DELICIOUS. And very filling. Note: Kraft Calorie Wise Italian dressing is half the calories of the CC listed fat-free dressing; I'm really using 1 cup of Kraft Calorie Wise.

Recipe Ingredients for Marg's Pasta Dinner Salad

2 cups broccoli florets
1/2 sweet red pepper
1/2 cup chopped red onion
4 oz light feta
6 oz whole wheat penne, raw
1/2 cup Kraft fat free Italian dressing
1/4 cup pine nuts, toasted

  1. Toast pine nuts under broiler, no need for oil. Set aside.
