Making a pasta salad is fun and easy. The hard part is deciding which type to make and how to flavor it. We had some broccoli florettes in the fridge that we hadn't gotten around to eating and they were calling out to us to combine with an interesting mixture of Mediterranean ingredients. Since we love pasta salads and we had some Kalamata olives and fresh basil also hanging around, this was the beginning of a new creation. We had also bought an extra bag of cherry tomatoes at the Farmer's Market just for such an occasion.Now we were inspired to put it all together. Unfortunately, we forgot to buy the Feta cheese but we had some provolone and, even though Feta would have been better, the provolone was good. So here's how it all went together...
