Greek Pasta Salad

Today I want to share with you a super easy recipe that makes a great side at your next BBQ or summer party, or a super easy grab and go for lunch during the week to pair with a salad.

What you need:

1 box whole wheat Farfalle noodles (aka "bow ties")
3 Roma tomatoes, diced
2 cucumbers, diced
1 container of Feta Cheese
1 cup fresh Parmesan cheese, shredded
1/2 - 3/4 cup black olives
1 1/2 cups of Italian or Greek dressing (you can use a little more based on your tastes, I don't like my pasta swimming) 

What you do:

Cook your noodles according to the box instructions. While the noodles are cooking, go ahead and cut the tomatoes and cucumbers and shred your cheese. 

Mix all ingredients together and serve warm or chilled. This lasts in refrigerator for several days and can be made ahead! It is actually best when made ahead, as the noodles have time to marinade and soak in all the flavor!


  1. Pasta salad has been a major craving of mine lately,
    Looks delicious!!

  2. I make a very similar pasta salad! I make it for lunch since it's so easy and doesn't have to be heated up. Glad you linked up with Jess and I!

  3. I make a similar one with orzo pasta and I omit the parm and add red onions. Love it!

  4. i have never made pasta salad before! But i really need to try this! I loveeeeeee greek dressing

  5. I'm not a fan of Pasta Salad but this one actually looks good. Well done lady. I might have to give Pasta Salad another try
