I haven’t done much cooking or baking in the kitchen in the last couple of months. When Christian and I were discussing our menu for the camping trip this past weekend, Christian mentioned he wanted pasta salad. I thought that is pretty easy, I should just make it myself. I went to my usual websites for recipes, The Pioneer Woman and Food Network and found a good recipe from the Barefoot Contessa, Ina Garten. The receipe can be found here: Tomato Feta Pasta Salad.
It was so simple to make: boil pasta, chop up tomatoes, sundried tomatoes & feta cheese. Put those ingredients aside & while waiting for the pasta to cool, prepare the dressing.
The dressing required red wine vinegar, one garlic clove, more sundried tomatoes, olive oil, salt, pepper & capers. I forgot to show the capers in my ingredient shot. I had a good mix of ingredients that came from the US & others from Germany! Mix everything together in a food processor.
Now it is time to combine the ingredients. To the pasta add the tomatoes, sundried tomatoes & the dressing.
Add some grated parmesan. Chop up parsley & also add to the mix. The last step was adding the feta cheese. This isn’t how the recipe says to mix it but I watched her video and she added the cheese last so it wouldn’t get too crumbly!
Done! Really tasty & perfect side for our camping dinner.
