1 head romaine lettuce
1 large carrot (I use shredded)
1/2 medium red onion
1 small head broccoli
2 plum tomatoes, or whatever tomatoes you like
1/2 cup sliced pitted black olives
1/2 cup grated fresh Parmesan cheese
1 cup Ranch salad dressing

** You can also add red, yellow or orange bell peppers, chopped cauliflower, some shredded red cabbage. Use whatever you like.

Cook pasta according to package directions; drain and rinse under cold running water. Spoon pasta onto large serving platter.

Thinly slice lettuce, carrot and red onion. Coarsely chop broccoli. Slice tomatoes into thin wedges.

Top pasta with lettuce, broccoli, carrot, onion, tomatoes and olives. Sprinkle Parmesan cheese over vegetables. Drizzle dressing over salad; toss to coat. Serve immediately.
