Warm Mediterranean Pasta Salad

Lunch, Pasta, Quick Meals | 1 comment

What do you make for lunch when you’ve got 2 zucchini and a package of sundried tomato basil feta cheese that need to be used up? How about a Warm Mediterranean Pasta Salad?

I made this, ate it, cleaned up the mess, showered, and blogged about it all an hour before I had to leave for my hair appointment. Probably not the best idea I’ve had, but I got it done and with fifteen minutes to spare. And the kids are with Eric right now. It isn’t often that I actually get to make myself a lunch and sit down to eat it without the kiddos around. Eric can enjoy the leftovers when he gets home.

    Hey, I made this last night and it was really good! I had to change a few things, like using the little tube pasta (penne?) because I wanted to use whole wheat and I couldn’t find whole wheat bow ties. We just had regular feta, so I used that, but bought some sun-dried tomatoes to add in. Both of us really liked it!
