A Cold Pasta Salad for Hot Days

This past weekend was unseasonably warm in Northeast Wisconsin. Driving around on Sunday, my car temperature gauge read 92 degrees outside. That is crazy for anywhere; especially Green Bay in May!

When it gets hot, I crave cold pasta salads. I found a variation of the pasta salad below on www.allrecipes.com. It is quick, easy, and cools you off!

Artichoke Pasta Salad
- 1 lb. elbow macaroni
- 1 cup halved grape tomatoes
- 3/4 cup sliced black olives
- 1 - 6.5 oz jar of marinated artichokes hearts - UNDRAINED
- Salt & Pepper to taste
- Sprinkle of parsley
- Feta Cheese

Cook macaroni according to the box directions. Rinse with cold water. Place in a bowl with tomatoes, black olives, artichoke hearts and juice. Mix together and add salt and pepper to taste. Sprinkle in parsley. Top with feta cheese. NOTE: This would also be great with some cooked shrimp.
