Cheesy Pasta Salad

Cheesy Pasta Salad paired with Chicken-on-a-Stick makes a great Halloween Night Dinner.
1 boxes Tri-Color Rotini pasta
8 tbsp. salted butter, cut into tablespoons
2 cups pasta water
1 cup grated Parmesan cheese
12 Kraft String Mozzarella Cheese sticks, sliced
1 head of broccoli, washed and cut into bite-sized florets
2 cups carrots, washed and sliced into bite-sized sticks

Bring large pot of salted water to a boil. Add broccoli and carrots and cook for 5 minutes until soft. Using a slotted spoon, remove vegetables from water to a bowl. Cover and set aside.
Add pasta to boiling water and cook according to box instructions. Drain and reserve 2 cups pasta water.
Return pasta to pot, stir in 1 cup hot pasta water followed by butter. Mix until butter is completely melted. If pasta seems a little dry, gradually add in a bit more pasta water. Mix in Kraft String Mozzarella Cheese.
Serve pasta, with vegetables to add if desired and sprinkle generously with Parmesan.
