Greek Bow Tie Pasta

Todays recipe came from me wishing to go to Greece and wanting to use up what I had in my refrigerator.

I use the basic Greek salad dressing recipe then add my ingredients to make this a very easy side or a light dinner.

 

Greek Dressing:

2-3 cloves of garlic minced then crushed

5 Tablespoon of red wine vinegar

1/2 Cup olive oil

1/2 Teaspoon of sugar

2 Tablespoon of lemon

1 1/2 Teaspoons of Dijon mustard

1/2 Teaspoon of basil leaves

1/4 Teaspoon of oregano leaves

Salt and Pepper to taste

Mix the above ingredients in a container, store in refrigerator.

 

Now that your dressing is chilling in the refrigerator assemble your salad.

Pasta Salad:

4-5 Cups of Bow Tie pasta cooked according to the box directions

1 can of Chickpeas ( rinsed and drained)

4-5 Green Onion diced

1-2 Tomatoes cut in bite sized pieces

1 Cup of Kalamata olives diced (or in a pinch black olives work)

1 Cup of crumbled Feta Cheese

1 Cup of baby Spinach

Mix the above ingredients in bowl, add the dressing. This can be eaten immediately or saved for later. I like it better after it has had time to sit refrigerated for a few hours.
