greek pasta salad

Every week I rack my brain for what to take for lunch the following week. And sometimes it feels as though looking for new lunch ideas is a part-time job. Which I know, and the taster reminds me, is so very ridiculous.  I love salads, but they sometimes leave me hungry at 2:30. I love soups, but get sick of them if I eat it a few times. Basically, I’m downright picky about my lunches.

Looking for: light, healthy, easily packed, quickly made, filling and bonus points if it can be made on Sunday afternoon

Found: A greek pasta salad that fits all of the above criteria and was even tastier than I expected!

Greek Pasta Salad Recipe: 2-3 lunch portions

  • 2 cups cooked 100% whole grain pasta
  • 1 cup garbanzo beans
  • 1 cup cucumber, chopped
  • 1/2 cup roasted red pepper, chopped
  • about 6 kalamata olives, chopped
  • 1/4 cup feta cheese, crumbled
  • spices: pepper, red pepper flakes, herbamare

Toss all ingredients together in a large bowl and portion out for lunches!

I served my pasta salad alongside some Pacific Organic Roasted Red Pepper & Tomato Soup with spinach stirred in.
