Bell Pepper-Feta Pasta Toss

Yield 4 servings (serving size: 1 1/4 cups)
Draining the pasta over the bell pepper may seem an unusual procedure, but it works great. This method cooks the pepper strips slightly before you toss them with the rest of the ingredients.

Ingredients

  • 6 ounces uncooked linguine
  • 1 large yellow or red bell pepper, seeded and cut into 1/8-inch strips
  • 1 1/4 cups quartered cherry tomatoes
  • 3/4 cup finely chopped fresh parsley
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 (4-ounce) package crumbled feta cheese with basil and sun-dried tomatoes
  • 1 (2 1/4-ounce) can or 1/4 cup sliced ripe olives, drained
