Veggie Pasta Salad

My friend Tina made this salad for a party our girls had a few months ago. I love the crunchy texture of the veggies with the creamy texture of the pasta. This is super easy to throw together. 1 bag chopped Romaine lettuce
1 small zucchini
1 small yellow squash
1 small cucumber
10-15 cherry tomatoes
4-5 slices provolone or Swiss cheese
1 small pkg. pasta (bowtie or spiral)
Bernsteins Cheese Fantastico dressing

Cook pasta according to package directions and cool. Chop the zucchini, squash and cucumber (I cut them in thin slices, then cut each slice in half). Cut each tomato in half. Slice cheese in thin strips. In a large bowl, toss the lettuce, veggies, and pasta. Just before serving, toss salad with desired amount of dressing (you'll only need about 1/3 of the bottle). Stir in the cheese slices last. Serve immediately.
