What's not to love about Bowtie Greek Pasta that tastes like a Greek salad? The flavor from kalamata olives, tomatoes and cucumbers makes this Greek pasta salad just scream summer!
Why You'll Love This Salad
I can't think of anything better to serve on a scorching summer day than Bowtie Greek Pasta salad. 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.
Can I Substitute Types of Pasta?
I'm all about making a recipe your own, so if you want to try a different type of pasta in this dish...go for it!
There are as many types of pasta as there are stars in the sky, but some of my favorites are rotelle, angel hair, cavatappi, and fusilli (corkscrew). Any of those pastas would compliment the other ingredients.
- bowtie pasta
- feta cheese
- cherry tomatoes
- sweet onion
- Kalamata olives
- Greek dressing
- dried parsley

Cheese tortellini is a great replacement for bowtie. I make this salad a lot. Sometimes I use orzo.
Great ideas, Tina!
