Mediterranean Pasta Salad with Broccoli and Cherry Tomato
364

Love this mediterranean style pasta salad! Marinated artichoke hearts, olives, and feta cheese were a delicious combination. The cherry tomatoes and broccoli add the fresh taste, sometimes we add several strips of roasted bell pepper, or freshly sliced mushrooms, or a few coarsely chopped sun-dried tomatoes.

We also love this mediterranean style pasta salad, marinated artichoke hearts, olives, and feta cheese bring this salad back to life, the cherry tomatoes and broccoli add the fresh taste; sometimes we add several strips of roasted bell pepper, or freshly sliced mushrooms, or a few coarsely chopped sun-dried tomatoes. And which way we use, it always turns out delicious!
