Black-Eyed Peas and Pasta
- Bring a large pot of water to a boil over high heat. Add salt, if using, and stir in the pasta shells. Reduce the heat to medium-high and cook the shells, uncovered, until al dente, 8 minutes.
- Meanwhile, place the tomatoes, black-eyed peas, olive oil, garlic, and cayenne in a large mixing bowl and stir to combine.
- Drain the pasta shells well in a colander. Transfer the shells to the mixing bowl and stir to combine well. Serve topped with the feta cheese, bacon, and parsley.
