  • ⅓ cup sugar
  • ⅓ cup diced red onion
  • ⅓ cup red wine vinegar
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 2 cups seedless red grapes, halved
  • 8 cooked bacon slices, crumbled 
Preheat oven to 350°. Bake pecans in a single layer in a shallow pan for 5 to 7 minutes or until lightly toasted, stirring halfway through. Meanwhile, prepare your pasta according to package directions.While your pasta is cooking, cut broccoli into bite-sized pieces.Whisk together Greek yogurt and next 4 ingredients in a large bowl; add broccoli, hot cooked pasta, and grapes, and stir to coat. Cover and chill 3 hours. Stir bacon and pecans into salad just before serving.
