Weeknight Greek Pasta Salad
20 oz Pasta - we used chicken stuffed tortellini but you could use your favorite. Bowtie or penne would be great as well
1-2 cups of grape tomatoes
1 cup olives - we like kalamata
1/2 small red onion
3/4 cup feta cheese
2 sprigs of fresh dill
1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil
3 Tbsp red wine vinegar
1 tsp minced garlic or 1 clove garlic finely chopped
1/2 tsp dried oregano
Salt & pepper to taste
Note: If you are in a pinch just use your favorite vinaigrette dressing such as Balsamic 1/4 cup.
Cook pasta according to package directions. Cut red onion into thin slices. Peel and deseed cucumber. Chop cucumber into half moon slices. If olives are not already sliced go ahead and slice them now. While pasta is cooking prepare your dressing by mixing the above ingredients. I add the dressing with my veggies to marinate once dressing is ready. After pasta is cooked mix all ingredients together. Add cheese and dill last. What a wonderful easy meal.
