This combination is good warm or cold! It takes very little time to make, and is very tasty because of the concentrated nature of the ingredients. This makes a nice main dish for a vegetarian meal, or a flavorful side dish salad if you really want to go all out! We usually have it as a main dish, along with some good bread, and maybe some sliced tomatoes.
Pasta and Feta Salad
1 lb small shells or spiral pasta
8 oz bag of mixed Mediterranean or spring greens
1 c sun-dried tomatoes in olive oil, chopped
4 oz feta cheese, crumbled
1/2 c Parmesan cheese, freshly grated
Salt and pepper
Boil up the pasta in salted water. Drain well. Put the salad greens in a large bowl, and toss with the warm pasta to wilt the greens a bit (if you want it warm); otherwise, allow the pasta to cool first. Add the chopped tomatoes with most of their oil, the cheeses, and the salt and pepper. Toss together and serve.
