This to me is one of the perfect summer salads. Not only does it tastes and look delicious. It has less fat and fewer calories than most pasta salads yet you still get the wonderful full flavor you expect. I did not have any frozen broccoli to add but it is great in addition to the corn.

Add some diced salami or ham, top with freshly shredded Parmesan with a side of crusty french bread to make it a complete meal.

Notes from the Test Kitchen:
Using tasty bottled dressing makes this pasta salad come together in a cinch. Diced red pepper and corn are slightly sweet and add a crunchy texture. It's a simple and colorful pasta salad. Enjoy alongside a sandwich, a burger or add your favorite protein for a light meal.
