Sunday Recipe Rewind: Athenian Pasta Salad

This is an excellent recipe. I love the Mediterranean feel of this recipe with the feta and the oil. The red pepper really makes this recipe so don’t skip this step unless you don’t like red peppers.

This is a recipe that would be great at a pot luck or just as a simple side dish. It’s easy and delicious and it’s something you can make ahead of time.
