Bowtie Pasta Salad

Bowtie Pasta Salad

A Summer Whites party calls for a menu with a matching color scheme, which is why we served a bowtie pasta salad at our Labor Day soiree. Made with zucchini, mint, and feta, this healthy take on a classic features fancy-shaped pasta to fit the party’s look. Here’s the simple recipe, which can be made a day before serving:

Ingredients:

  • 2 – 12 ounce package bowtie pasta (farfalle)
  • 6 ounce crumbled feta cheese
  • 1-2 green zucchinis, peeled and diced
  • 1 bunch fresh mint, chopped
  • 1 lemon, zested and squeezed
  • 2-4 tablespoons olive oil
  • Salt
  • Freshly ground pepper
  1. Boil bowtie pasta in salted water and cook according to package directions (approximately 8 minutes).
  2. Drain pasta in a colander and rinse with cold water; transfer to a serving dish and drizzle with olive oil.
  3. Add diced zucchini, mint, and lemon zest.
  4. Add lemon juice and olive oil; toss.
  5. Add salt and pepper to taste and sprinkle with feta.
