This week’s featured recipe is for a quick and easy Green Spinach-Pasta Salad. Everything goes in raw (except the pasta) so the prep work is easy. This pasta salad has all the bright flavors of a great Greek salad including lemon, olives, garlic, fresh oregano, red onions, artichoke hearts, grape tomatoes, and feta cheese. This recipe is plenty filling for vegetarians. Add in grilled swordfish or shrimp skewers for a more robust entrée.
