Pasta Salad with Fresh Mozzarella

Here is a yummy side dish to take to your summer BBQ's. (If summer ever gets here!) Lots of tasty fresh veggies.

3/4 lb.  rotini or bow tie pasta, cooked according to directions
1 can black olives, drained
2 cups fresh broccoli, cut into small pieces
1/2 red bell pepper, sliced to thin strips
8 baby carrots, sliced to thin strips
1 pint cherry tomatoes, sliced in half
about 3/4 of a bottle Kraft Zesty Italian Dressing
8 oz. fresh mozz., cubed.

Combine all ingredients in a salad bowl, pouring the dressing over all. Best if left to marinate in the fridge a few hours. Season with a little salt, fresh cracked pepper, and some shredded Parmesan before serving.
