This is a quick and simple salad and the handful of pasta thrown makes it really full. It is fresh and light and perfect for the tummy. I just crumbled half the feta to scatter the goodness all around the plate.
This colorful salad could be had as a meal for one or as salad serves 2. I just bout add the rocket leaves…to give a unique flavor and taste. It just ups the taste and freshness of the salad to another level.
