Quick Broccoli & Roasted Red Pepper Pasta Salad

I threw this together with what I had on hand and it was very tasty! I paired it with my Crispy & Juicy Fried Chicken. Mmm, just right for a picnic! This is also wonderful for Holiday dinners as the broccoli & red peppers stay a beautiful bright red & green!
