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.
