    5      c                 broccoli florets
      1/2  pound         penne
    1      medium        tomato -- seeded and cubed
      1/3  cup           pine nuts
    1      tsp           dried basil
      2/3  c             Creamy Garlic Dressing
    2      Tbsp          grated Parmesan cheese

 Bring a stockpot of water to a boil. Drop in the broccoli and
 blanch until tender but still crunchy, about 2 minutes. Remove
 with a slotted spoon and place in a bowl. Rinse under cold
 running water until chilled. Drain thoroughly, then pat dry with
 paper towels. Place in a large serving bowl.
 
 Cook the penne in the boiling water until al dente. Drain in a
 colander, then chill under cold water. Drain again, then pat with
 paper towels to absorb moisture. Place in the bowl with the broccoli.
 
 Stir in the tomato, pine nuts, and basil. Mix the dressing with the
 Parmesan cheese and pour on the salad. Season with salt and pepper.
 let sit at least 30 minutes before serving. If you are going to wait
 longer, cover and chill until 30 minutes before serving, then bring to
 room temperature.
