Gluten-free if using gluten-free pasta
In August, I finally met some family members I had never met before. They live on the west coast, Oregon, and don’t get to Ohio very often.
My mom’s first cousin, their mother, lives in the Phoenix area. She comes into town more often than her children. She was planning to visit the family and decided her children should also come to Ohio.
Since they came into town, one of my mom’s first cousins decided we needed a family get-together with a potluck dinner.
My aunt flew into town from New York. That was an adventure in itself. (Needless to say, her maybe 4-hour trip took almost 12 hours because of plane delays and missed connections).
Any-who, on the same day as the family, get together, our church had its annual picnic. I needed to make something that could be served at the picnic and the get-together. That’s when I decided to make this Greek pasta salad. It’s quick and easy to put together.
This recipe can either be prepped for the week or eaten as a side dish. If you decide to prep it for the week, add the dressing before you eat the pasta salad, so it does not get soggy.
The dressing I used for this recipe was the Greek Feta cheese dressing from Trader Joe’s. However, you can use whatever Greek dressing you desire.
What you’ll need:
- Box of farfalle pasta (bow tie pasta) – You can use any shape,o like penne, but I just like the shape of the bow ties.
- Jar of artichokes
- Kalamata Olives
- Bell Pepper (orange, red, or yellow)
- Feta Cheese
- Sundried Tomatoes
- Greek dressing
Happy vegetarian eating,
