1/2 cup low-fat Caesar dressing
2 teaspoons sun-dried tomato sprinkles
3/4 teaspoon dried rosemary, crushed
5 cups cooked penne (10 ounces uncooked tube-shaped pasta)
3/4 cup thinly sliced cucumber
1/3 cup chopped fresh basil
1/4 cup chopped pitted kalamata olives
1/4 cup sliced red onion, separated into rings

3/4 cup (3 ounces) crumbled feta cheese
1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
Chopped fresh parsley (optional)

Preparation

Bring 6 cups water to a boil in a large saucepan. Add shrimp; cook 3 minutes or until done. Drain and rinse with cold water. Peel and chill shrimp.

Combine shrimp, dressing, tomato sprinkles, and rosemary in a large bowl. Add pasta and next 5 ingredients (pasta through bell peppers); toss gently to coat. Cover; chill 1 hour. Sprinkle with cheese and black pepper. Garnish with chopped parsley, if desired.
