Lemon Pasta Salad Recipe

    4 Servings


  • 1/2 pound Pasta Shells, small size preferred
  • 1 cup Frozen Peas, thawed
  • 1/2 cup Crumbled Feta Cheese
For the Dressing:
  • 3 tablespoons Extra Virgin Olive Oil
  • 1 clove Garlic, minced
  • juice of 2 Lemon, about 1/4 cup
  • Crushed Red Pepper Flakes, to taste
  • Salt and Pepper, to taste


  1. Cook the pasta in salted water according to the package instructions.
  2. In a small pan, add the olive oil, garlic and red pepper flakes. Set the heat to low and cook until the garlic begins to sizzle, about 3 minutes. Remove from heat before garlic browns. Whisk in lemon juice, along with salt and pepper to taste.
  3. Drain pasta and rinse with cold water. Place drained pasta in a large bowl along with peas and feta.
  4. Toss with dressing and refrigerate until chilled. May also be served hot or at room temperature.
