Pasta Salad With Broccoli and Feta Cheese

Finding a new, at least for me, type of pasta, was a good enough reason to think about making pasta salad, which I haven’t made much during the extra hot days of summer.

Whenever I prepare lobster rolls (click HERE for the recipe), I cook one or two extra lobster tails, to use in different dishes.
This time, I decided to use the cooked lobster in a quick and light pasta dish.
