So I have made this quick & easy pasta twice now. I will definitely make it again, especially if I need a yummy pasta salad for a potluck or something like that. My children weren't crazy over it, but the ladies at our neighborhood party sure were! It is fresh-tasting and flavorful and is one more great way to utilize those fresh garden tomatoes!
16 oz uncooked pasta (I used penne)
2 green onions, chopped (I prefer the green onion in this but the 2nd time I only had red onion on hand and it was still tasty)
6 oz package feta cheese, crumbled
1/2 cup balsamic vinegar (I have also seen variations of this recipe where red wine vinegar was substituted).
1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil
2 cups diced fresh tomato (Roma are my preference)
Cook pasta as package directs (paying close attention to keep them slightly al dente.) Drain. Toss pasta with onion, feta, balsamic, oilive oil & tomato. Serve immediately or chill 1 to 2 hours in refrigerator. Great warm or cold! Side dish or salad! I think diced grilled chicken could make this a yummy entree. I have seen variations with olives & garlic as well.
