From these two recipes:


  • bowtie pasta cooked tender and drained

  • large bunch of fresh broccoli; washed, trimmed and chopped

  • green onions; sliced thin

  • green pepper, chopped

  • chopped tomatoes

  • maybe some ham or chopped up pepperoni


  • 1/4 c white vinegar

  • 1/4 c orange juice

  • 1 tbs vegetable oil

  • 1 tsp basil

  • 1 tsp oregano

  • 1/4 tsp minced garlic

  • 1/4 tsp pepper


  1. Prepare pasta, do not overcook. Drain. Cool at least 30 minutes in refrigerator.

  2. In a small bowl or jar blend dressing.

  3. In a large bowl combine green pepper, tomatoes, broccoli, green onions, and whatever else. When the pasta is cool, mix together with vegetables.

  4. Add the dressing and toss to coat. Sprinkle with Parmesan — fresh is best. Best if refrigerated again for 1 hour.
