Pasta Salad with Tomatoes, Zucchini, and Feta

Next up on the April Sweet as Pie list was Pasta Salad with Tomatoes, Zucchini, and Feta.  Super.  Easy.  This came together so quickly that I barely have photos.

Grape tomatoes, zucchini, and feta cheese.

Throw all of the vegetables into a bowl of bowtie pasta.

Finally, add an entire container of feta cheese, some oil, some fresh lemon juice, and salt and pepper.  This is a good base recipe.  I love the lemon, but if I make it again I’ll switch out the vegetables and step up the seasonings.  I like zucchini, but I’m not wild about it raw, so I think I’d definitely substitute cucumber for an even fresher taste.  As far as seasoning goes, I think this would benefit from a little more flavorful blend, including some garlic.  And the parsley.  In my opinion, parsley is only slightly better than useless.  If it weren’t green and offered a pop of color, it would be completely useless.  Maybe my palette just doesn’t respond well to parsley.  Anyway, my recommendation would be to skip the parsley and go with fresh basil.  Oh, oh, and maybe some of those tiny mozzarella balls (which are apparently called bocconcini)!  See, like I said, a good base recipe.
