Rehydrate sun-dried tomatoes according to package directions, then chop tomatoes and place them in a large salad bowl. Add cooked pasta and sliced mushrooms; set aside. Fill a large saucepan half full with water and bring to a boil. Add snow peas and broccoli; boil 1 minute. Remove snow peas and broccoli with a slotted spoon and add to the pasta mixture. Sprinkle Feta cheese over pasta mixture; toss well; set aside.
Combine dressing ingredients in a jar, cover tightly, and shake well. Pour over pasta mixture and toss to coat. Chill at least 2 hours to allow flavors to blend. Toss well and garnish with shredded Parmesan cheese.
Note: If desired, add grilled chicken strips for a filling main dish.
