Pasta Salad; Family Recipe

My family isn’t one that has family recipes. Nothing was passed down through the generations, and the meals that my mom cooked weren’t meals that her great-great grandmother ate before her. Everything was pretty much researched (recipe finding in my family is big).

This recipe is one that wasn’t actually taken from a book, however. It is from my uncles’ girlfriend, who after a lot of experimenting, came up with this amazing pasta salad.

 

Ingredients:

Tri-Colored Spiral Pasta

Sun-Dried Tomatoes

Feta Cheese

Italian Dressing (my favorite to use is Newmans Own Family recipe)

Red Onion

Artichoke Hearts

 

Directions:

Cook pasta according to directions on box. Drain, and rise with cold water to stop from cooking.

Cut the sun-dried tomatoes, red onion and artichoke hearts into smaller pieces.

In a large bowl, combine the pasta, artichoke hearts, sun-dried tomatoes, and red onion. Add Italian dressing, tasting before adding more. Lastly, add the feta cheese and mix.

Refrigerate for about 1 hour before eating for better taste.
