Pasta and feta salad

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.
