Updated Oct 27, 2008

Ingredients

  • 2 cups uncooked farfalle (bow-tie) pasta (4 ounces)
  • 2 cups broccoli florets
  • 2 medium tomatoes, chopped (1 1/2 cups)
  • 1 medium yellow bell pepper, chopped (1 cup)
  • 1/3 cup diced red onion
  • 1 cup mayonnaise or salad dressing
  • 1/2 cup plain yogurt
  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon curry powder
  • 1 1/2 cups shredded Cheddar cheese (6 ounces)
  • 1 tablespoon Betty Crocker™ Bac~Os® bacon flavor bits or chips
  • 2 tablespoons finely chopped fresh parsley

Steps

  • 1
    Cook and drain pasta as directed on package. Place broccoli in boiling water. Cover and cook 1 minute; drain. Immediately rinse with cold water; drain.
  • 2
    While pasta is cooking, layer tomatoes, broccoli, bell pepper and onion in 2-quart glass serving bowl.
  • 3
    In medium bowl, mix mayonnaise, yogurt, sugar and curry powder. Stir in pasta. Layer pasta evenly over onion in serving bowl.
  • 4
    Sprinkle with cheese. Top with bacon bits and parsley. Cover and refrigerate at least 8 hours before serving but no longer than 24 hours.

Tips from the Betty Crocker Kitchens

  • tip 1
    Use star- or tree-shaped pasta, rotini or any medium shell pasta.
  • tip 2
    Cooking the broccoli quickly in boiling water softens it slightly and brings out the bright green color. Pat dry with a paper towel so it maintains its crispness.
