Greek Pasta Salad

We had a big meeting at church last week and my husbandd asked if I could make dinner for it. Of course I don't mind because I love to cook, but he gave me a veeeery rough estimate of people, "35-50". Being that budgets are tight I was trying to come up with an inexpensive, but good meal that feeds a lot of people and doesn't require hours and hours of time to assemble. So, I decided to make Meatball Subs, Pasta Salad, and Dessert. Every cost added(including water & ice, plates & napkins, and food) was less than $120 which is great that many people.
I just threw ingredients together to make this pasta salad but people thought it was amazing so I'm posting the recipe. (It really did turn out well).

Greek Pasta Salad

1 lb short cut pasta (bowties, penne...)
1 pint cherry tomatoes, halved
1 small can black olives, halved
1/4 red onion, thinly sliced
1 small bunch broccoli, but in small spears
1/2 cucumber, peeled & thinly sliced
1 small bunch basil thinly sliced or torn
6-8 oz crumbled feta cheese
10 oz bottled italian dressing
3-5 oz bottled red pepper vinaigrette (any brand)
Cook pasta al dente, drain rinse and cool. Toss in all veggies and toss with dressing. Chill several hours or overnight.
