We’ve had a few warm days, and whatever the temperature is where you live, school is winding to a close and people are extra busy and where are all the simple recipes that don’t take much time and use only a few ingredients and don’t heat up the whole house to make?
Oh, we have lots of those here. Texas-Style Pasta Salad is one of our readers’ favorites!
1 package or box of pasta, pretty much any kind, cooked (my family likes bow-tie or noodles best)
1/2 cup Feta cheese
1 cup any kind of Texas Pepper Jelly (last night, I used Strawberry Jalapeno)
1/4 cup finely diced onion
What to do:
Mix all of the above ingredients together (make sure the pasta has cooled) and cover the bowl. Put it in the refrigerator overnight, and voila – the perfect lunch for the next day. Or the perfect supper.
If there are any leftovers, I like to eat them for breakfast.
This is such a delicious mixture of flavors; the Feta cheese goes beautifully with almost ever Texas Pepper Jelly product, including our awesome Bird Bath products and our Rib Candy. In fact, I’ve made this pasta salad with Rib Candy before and it turned out great.
There is just something about this dish that is perfect for these busy weeks, and of course later in the summer when it’s really hot, a cold pasta salad is perfection. Absolute perfection.
