Chicken Bowtie Pasta Salad

This one was really good. It reminded me of that dish at Johnny Carino's. Actually, I added bacon bits into this and I would totally recommend doing the addition!

2 cups farfalle (bow-tie pasta), uncooked
2 cups fresh broccoli florets
1 pkg. (6 oz.) OSCAR MAYER Grilled Chicken Breast Strips (just used leftover chicken)
1 cup halved cherry tomatoes or 1 large tomato, cut into chunks
1/2 cup KRAFT Light Zesty Italian Reduced Fat Dressing, divided
1/2 cup KRAFT Natural 2% Milk Reduced Fat Colby & Monterey Jack Cheese Crumbles
1/4 cup sliced black olives
1/4 cup KRAFT 100% Grated Parmesan Cheese

COOK pasta as directed on package, adding broccoli to the cooking water for the last 2 min. of the pasta cooking time; drain.

TOSS chicken, tomatoes, dressing, cheese crumbles and olives in large bowl. Add pasta mixture; mix lightly.

SPRINKLE with Parmesan cheese.
