Alison's Pasta Salad

Alison, my good friend and bridesmaid, sent me a delicious recipe of her favorite pasta salad! I cooked it for Michael tonight, along with Nordstrom Cafe's tomato soup (they sell it by the jar in the cafe). It turned out great, so I thought I'd share the recipe for this tasty pasta salad!

Alison's Pasta Salad and Nordstrom Tomato Soup
Alison's Pasta Salad:
  • 1 box Orzo, cooked (immediately run cold water over pasta after cooked)
  • 1/4 red onion finely chopped
  • 1 zucchini, cut and sauteed
  • 1 container grape tomatoes, cut into quarters
  • 1 or 2 cloves garlic, minced and cooked
  • 1 container feta cheese
  • Parsley (to taste or color)
  • lemon juice from 1/2 lemon
  • olive oil, salt, and pepper to taste

Mix everything together and refrigerate. Bonus: I have a yummy lunch to take to work with me tomorrow!
