Italian Dressing Pasta Salad

Do you have a signature dish that everyone requests when you have family gatherings?  Well, this salad is the recipe that we all request for my sister to bring each time.  Everyone finds something in this dish that they like. My favorite is the dressing.  My hubby's favorite are the olives.  The kids?  They love the cheese!!!!

1 (1 lb.) bag or box of pasta of your choice, I actually used gluten free to make my hubby happy
1 orange pepper, diced
1 red pepper, diced
1 small bunch of broccoli florets, cut up
1 (8 oz.) block sharp cheddar cheese, diced
1 can black olives, sliced
1 bottle Italian dressing

1.  Prepare pasta as directed on package.  Rinse in cold water and drain.
2.  In a large bowl, mix all ingredients and stir thoroughly.
3.  Chill for 1 hour, stir before serving.
