Cook the pasta according to instructions on package. Select a pot large enough to hold, without boiling over, water 3 times the volume of the pasta to be cooked. Don't overcook. Drain and cool.
Place the ingredients in a blender. Blend until smooth. Makes about 2-1/2 cups.
While the pasta is cooking prepare the ham, artichoke hearts, mushrooms, onion, olives, crumbled Roquefort and lettuce. Then prepare the salad dressing. Lightly toss together the pasta and other salad ingredients. Serve with the dressing.
Makes about 10 to 12 servings
