Fettuccine and vegetable salad

Preparation time: 25 minutes

6 ounces fettuccine, uncooked, broken in half
2 cups broccoli flowerets
1 cup sliced carrots
1 cup sliced celery
1/2 cup commercial fat-free creamy Italian salad dressing
1/2 teaspoon pepper
12 cherry tomatoes, halved
3/4 pound cooked chicken, turkey, beef, or pork

Cook fettuccine according to package directions, omitting salt and oil. Drain and rinse under cold water; drain again and set aside. Meanwhile, cook broccoli, carrots, and celery in a small amount of boiling water or steam until crisp-tender, about 5–6 minutes. Drain and plunge vegetables into cold water for 1 minute; drain again. Combine cooked fettuccine and vegetables in large bowl. Add dressing and pepper and stir well. Gently fold in tomatoes. Cut meat into bite-size pieces or strips and arrange over salad. Serve immediately, or chill until serving time.

Note: Other vegetables may be substituted for those listed, if desired.

Yield: about 8 cups
Serving size: 1 cup
