Spinach feta pasta salad

    50 min

    This is an easy peasy pasta salad that combines spinach, feta and dill. It isn't heavy on dressing, but the olive oil, garlic and feta provide loads of flavour. Fresh chopped dill is wonderful in this salad.

    WOW!! I can not even express in writing how good this pasta salad was!! I am a picky vegetarian who lives in a house full of carnivores and everyone LOVED it!!!!! The only thing I added was a bit of melted butter right before serving! It was superb, it was excellent!! Thank you!  -  25 Feb 2003  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)

    My husband can be a picky eater at times, so when I told him the ingredients to this recipe, he was skeptical. After the dish was prepared and served, he ate 2 bowls and couldn't stop raving about it. Delicious! Will definitely put into my recipe rotation.
