Simple, delicious, quick and easy sun dried tomato and feta pasta salad with rocket leaves ready in just 15 minutes!
There are times when you just need a quick appetiser that is healthy, delicious and filling at the same time - that is when pasta salad works best for me. I do have a recipe on my blog already for a Pesto Pasta Salad and absolutely love how pre-made dips and sauces work well when creating a nice cold pasta salad for a big crowd.
This no fuss sun dried tomato and feta pasta salad was inspired by a really light pasta salad I tried at a restaurant few weeks ago - it was simple penne tossed in some olive oil and sun dried tomatoes and feta was added to it. I tried re-creating the recipe and ended up making a pro version by adding some arugula/ rocket leaves and some cream to the sun dried tomato paste from the Gourmet Jar - which was the perfect fit for this dish.
This spicy fiery sun dried tomato spread from the Gourmet Jar is super versatile. You spread it on warm toast and enjoy with some feta sprinkled on it. Or mix it with some grilled veggies, maybe? I enjoyed it the most as a light dressing for this penne pasta salad. With the perfect amount of chilli, this sun dried tomato spread complimented very well with feta cheese in this salad.
