This salad is refreshing, healthy, and simple to make with just four ingredients. Its wonderful to serve with grilled chicken which is what I do or just alone as a side dish if you are a vegetarian. You can serve this warm or cold, whichever you please. I find this colorful salad kid friendly too. Not a fan of feta, simply just use goat cheese or cubed cheese of your choice.
What you need:
2 cups of bow tie pasta
4 teaspoon of olive oil
1 teaspoon of minced garlic
1 cup of tomato, chopped
salt & pepper
1 cup of feta cheese
1/2 cup chopped basil
1. In a saucepan over medium heat, combine oil, garlic and tomatoes. Cook tomatoes for about 3 minutes until the juices start to be released. Season with salt and pepper. While this is cooking boil your water and cook pasta accordingly to box directions.
2. Combine pasta and tomatoes. Mix well.
2. Add in cheese and basil. Toss. Sprinkle on some Parmesan cheese for a little extra flavor. Serve hot or cold!
