Ingredients

  • 2 lbs ripe tomatoes, cut into 1” cubes
  • 3 large red bell peppers, seeded and chopped
  • 1/2 cup parsley or dill, finely chopped
  • 1 cup feta cheese, crumbled
  • 1 large garlic clove, grated
  • 2 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
  • Pinch of salt
  • Ground black pepper, to taste
  • 2 cups (8 oz) any short whole wheat or gluten free pasta, uncooked

Instructions

  1. In a large salad bowl, add ingredients as you are preparing them in the above listed order: tomatoes, bell peppers, parsley, feta cheese, garlic, olive oil and pepper.
  2. Cook pasta as per package instructions undercooking by 2-3 minutes or until pasta is al dente, cooked but firm. Add cooked pasta directly from the pot to salad bowl, this will allow hot pasta to melt feta cheese a bit and help flavours marry each other. A bit of pasta water transferring with pasta is fine.
  3. Add a pinch of salt and gently stir pasta salad just enough to combine. Serve warm or cold.
