Broccoli and Feta Pasta

Mar 28, 2012

Pinterest strikes again. My motto is slowly becoming “I pinned, I made it.” My poor cookbooks have gotten zero attention since I got hooked on Pinterest. This pasta salad is delicious. Full of so many great flavors. I have eaten it for lunch the past few days and even heated it up for dinner as well. It is so darn good. I have to admit I don’t usually eat alot of pastas because they are often so heavy. Not this one, it is so light, fresh, and healthy! Sauteeing the broccoli really gives the pasta great flavor and crunch. I added in toasted pine nuts because I always think they pair wonderfully with Broccoli. I think this would also be killer with some grilled Chicken or Shrimp as a main meal. Make this you will love it!

Broccoli and Feta Pasta Salad
serves 4
1 pound mixed tri-color pasta
1 head broccoli, chopped into florets
8 ounces feta cheese
1/2 cup Kalamata olives, pitted and chopped
1/4 cup Toasted Pine Nuts
2 tablespoons olive oil
1 tablespoon red wine vinegar
Salt and pepper

Cook the pasta and drain. Cook the broccoli in a heavy frying pan with a little olive oil over medium heat until crisp-tender – 5-7 minutes. Toss with cooked pasta and olives.

Crumble the feta cheese into the pasta. Whisk the oil, vinegar, and salt and pepper and toss with the pasta.
