Lemon and Feta Pasta

"Oh so good, and it can be increased easily. I think I will use acini de pepe pasta, but any pasta will be great with this. Tweaked a little to my own taste, but originally the pasta was added to the "dressing" in a bowl and the veggies and feta just put in at the last minute. I prefer them cooked a little."

    * Reviewed for Whine and Cheese Gang s visit to Greece ZWT6* Easy and tasty. I used gluten-free Lasagne Corte. Also sauted the garlic in the oil before adding to the pasta. Did find some extra olive oil was required.....but may have been due to the gf pasta. Loved the little bursts of tomato with the lemony pasta. Photo also to be posted

    Good pasta served with fish. I thought it was a little dry though and added a few more tablespoons of olive oil. I didn't have dijon so used about 1/2 teaspoon of dried mustard. A nice flavor that didn't overpower with lemon or garlic.

    Very fresh and delicious! I sauteed the garlic in the oil and added the rest of the sauce ingredients into that. I used low fat feta and really liked the combination of the feta and lemon. If you are a fan of the ingredients, you will absolutely love this! I wouldn't change a thing. Made for Gimme 5. Thanks for a terrific lunch! :)

    This is a very light, summery dish. I served it cold as it was a hot day. I microwaved the garlic in the olive oil a little so it wouldn't have the potency of raw garlic, then didn't warm it up in step 3. I also played around with the proportions of olive oil to lemon, as initially I found the lemon flavour a bit strong. Thanks for a lovely summer recipe!


http://www.recipezaar.com/members/home/527607/cookswithcattitude.jpg I am a middle aged foodie who has had the luxury of living all over the world except asia. Lived in or grew up in Nigeria, Kenya, Chicago, Russia,and haiti. born in New Zealand, brother born in Austria and many more. I have chronic medication resistant depression after 10 years on anti depressants that worked well but would stop working after a year or two, so now do my best at home living on disabilty. Not a bad thing, many have far worse health issues but i have been able to concentrate on food/cooking. My main passions are my cats. I live in the woods and somehow many starving strays or "dumps" have found the message babies who passed on left in the woods saying "suck lives at xxxx road. Most arrive sick and/or starving. Right now i have 2 that arrived with feline herpes and their attendant 2ndry bacterial infections but are doing beautifully. One old man who was going to be euthanized bc a lady who found him as a stray was moving and didnt want him...well he was a biter and rather grumpy who was in ICU for 3 days with a deadly gut infection which was fixed but he left with a diagnosis of diabetes. 3 months on insulin and finally diet controlled and he caught the herpes virus, respiratory symptom version and turned into a cuddler. Butterscotch must think "why didnt i figure out this cuddle stuff was great before i got sick!" Doing wonderfully even though he has bouts. he and the other kids are my babies. Sadly Butterscotch died of Lymphatic cancer in winter of 2008. A year before Big Boy arrived in my life, starving and weak. Full of affection he jumped into my arms and stayed, turns out he has FIV (cat hiv) so he needs to be watched closely. I love him dearly <img src="http://i23.photobucket.com/albums/b399/susied214/permanent%20collection/Adopted1smp.jpg" border="0" alt="Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket"> <img src="http://i23.photobucket.com/albums/b399/susied214/permanent%20collection/smPACp.jpg" border="0" alt="Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket"> <img src="http://i21.photobucket.com/albums/b280/carolinamoon21/Stockingswapcopy.jpg"> <img src="http://i23.photobucket.com/albums/b399/susied214/permanent%20collection/participantbannerzwt5.jpg" border="0" alt="Photobucket"> <img src="http://i3.photobucket.com/albums/y53/DUCHESS13/cookbookswap.jpg"> <img src="http://www.caymandesigns.com/foodothers/fallswap.jpg">
