Easy Pasta Salad

1 lb tri-color pasta (corkscrew type works best)
1 bunch broccoli
2 carrots, peeled and sliced thinly into circles
1 small red pepper, cut into 1" square pieces
1 cucumber, peeled, halved and cut into thin slices
1 or 2 green onions, thinly sliced
1 bottle fat-free Italian dressing

Cook pasta, drain and rinse with cold water. Cut broccoli into florets
(save stalks for another use) and cook in microwave for a minute or so
(or you can blanch it in some hot water - this brings out the color and
flavor). Rinse with cold water.

Put pasta, broccoli and the rest of the vegetables in a big bowl. Chill
well. Just before serving, pour dressing over pasta and vegetables and
stir well. You can add whatever vegetbles you like, but don't skimp on
the red pepper -- it adds a wonderful sweetness.
