Lemon Arugula Pasta Salad
Serves: 8-10
A light and simple pasta salad with an easy lemon pepper dressing.
  • 1 16 ounce bag Penne Pasta
  • 1 Bell Pepper (red, orange or yellow), sliced into bite size pieces
  • 2-3 cups (packed) Arugula
  • 2 cups cherry or grape tomatoes, halved
  • ¼ - ½ c Feta Cheese
  • ¼ c Olive Oil
  • ½ - 1 fresh lemon, juiced or squeezed for juice
  • Salt & Pepper to Taste
  1. Make Penne noddles according to package directions. Once done add to large mixing bowl.
  2. Add in the bell pepper, arugula and tomato halves.
  3. Dress with the olive oil and fresh squeezed lemon. (I just mixed these two together in a small bowl, adding more lemon for a lemony taste). Mix well.
  4. Season with salt and pepper and top with feta cheese.
  5. Can let stand in fridge for a few hours to let it chill before serving. I find it better chilled.
  6. **for a more lemony taste use the whole lemon, and add the dressing before serving. The lemon absorbs all the ingredients eventually, losing some of it's taste. Stir well before serving.
