Summer Pasta with Salsa Cruda

    25 min

    This is a great summer pasta recipe. The sauce is not cooked, so all you have to do is boil the pasta, then combine with a fresh tasting array of herbs, olives, tomato and feta cheese.

    We altered this recipe by making a dressing of olive oil, red wine vinegar and sugar and added it to the tomato mixture. It turned out really well!  -  02 Sep 2001  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    If I could give this 10 Stars, I would!!! This was one of the best pasta dishes I have ever HAD, let alone MADE! My husband had SECONDS and finished the bowl! I nearly licked my plate clean! We will make this again and again!  -  13 Aug 2005  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    This has become a definite favorite at our house. We love it! I also suggested it to a friend whose family loved it, too. I made a few changes though. First, I use angel hair pasta instead, a 28 oz. can of chopped tomatoes instead of fresh, 1/3 cup basil instead of a whole cup and add a small can of chopped black olives. I make this on a regular basis and never tire of it!  -  23 Mar 2003  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
