Serve this Feta Artichoke Pasta Salad at your next BBQ with other sides like macaroni salad, potato salad, and macaroni & cheese.

I first had this pasta salad at a function I went to with my mom & liked it so much that I tracked down the host and got the recipe. I think next time I’ll add some some sun dried tomatoes, too.

It’s perfect for a picnic/BBQ since there’s no mayo in it that you have to worry about keeping cool.

I also make the full batch and pack it for lunches throughout the week.

INGREDIENTS

  • Noodles
  • Crumbled Feta Cheese
  • Black Olives
  • Green Olives
  • Tomatoes
  • Artichoke Hearts
  • Onion
  • Italian Seasoning
  • Ranch Dressing Seasoning
  • Olive Oil
  • Parmesan Cheese

TIPS & TRICKS

  • Use your favorite noodle shape. I usually opt for mostaccioli or mini ziti.
  • Buy pre-sliced olives to save time.
  • I buy the artichoke hearts packed in olive oil. Drain the oil before you chop them up.
  • Store extra pasta in the fridge, covered. If it is a bit dry on day 2 or 3, just add some more olive oil and toss.
