Greek Pasta Salad

It’s the simple things in life. I love pasta salad, its such a great meal or side dish to make because its so darn easy.  This greek pasta salad is one of my family's favorites to eat. It's so rich and creamy and, well, good!


The ingredients we like to put in our pasta salad are olives, feta cheese, tomatoes, and sometimes cucumbers.
Boil and drain the cavatappi noodles.  Can I just say that there is something about spiral noodles. I think they hold the dressing in a lot better. When I buy a box of kraft mac and cheese it’s always spiral, hands down. That's why I like to use the spiral cavatappi noodles in this recipe.
Once the noodles have cooled add the dressing.
Add the cut cucumbers, tomatoes, crumbled feta cheese, and olives.
Mix it all together and serve!

Cook cavatappi noodles according to the back of the box. While the noodles are cooking cut the medium cucumber.  Drain the cooked noodles and pour into a large bowl.  Add the dressing, olives, tomatoes, and cucumber. Crumble feta cheese into bowl. Mix the ingredients until combined.
