Bowtie Greek Pasta with veggies in a bowl

Bowtie Greek Pasta

What’s not to love about bowtie pasta that tastes like a Greek salad?

I can’t think of anything better to serve on a scorching summer day than Bowtie Greek Pasta. It’s got everything you love in one big bowl….tomatoes, cucumbers, onions, olives and pasta. Yum to the YUM.

Kalamata olives are one of those things you either love or hate. I happen to be a lover. I can’t get enough of them. The salty, bitter brine is delicious. But, if you prefer the milder taste of black olives, you could use those instead.

Back to the pasta. It’s light, packed with flavor…and the perfect accompaniment to Grilled Pork Tenderloin. This dish can be served as is, or with grilled chicken on top. It also goes great with any type of seafood.

And, here’s the best part…it comes together in a flash! Just boil the pasta, and while it’s cooking, chop the veggies. Mix it all together…and you’ve got a light lunch or dinner ready in 30 minutes!

With a recipe as easy and versatile as Bowtie Greek Pasta, it’s soon to become one of your summer-time staples. 🙂

    Cheese tortellini is a great replacement for bowtie. I make this salad a lot. Sometimes I use orzo.
