I honor of the summer heat and the overwhelming desire NOT to turn on the oven, I am going to share with you a delicious summer recipe that only involves cooking the pasta.
I found this recipe at the Kraft food web site, which I visit regularly for quick and simple recipes.
3 cups bow-tie pasta, uncooked
2 cups baby spinach leaves
1 cup KRAFT Natural Mediterranean Style Cheese Crumbles
1 cup cherry tomatoes, halved
3/4 cup drained canned chickpeas (garbanzo beans), rinsed
1/2 cup KRAFT Greek Vinaigrette Dressing
COOK pasta as directed on package; drain. Place in large bowl.
ADD remaining ingredients; mix lightly.
SERVE immediately or cover and refrigerate until ready to serve
My own, more Greek, rendition of this recipe includes using only Feta cheese and adding kalamata olives. Enjoy!
