PUMPKIN & FETA PASTA SALAD
COOKBOOK: Mag recipe
This was super easy and yummy!
I loved the pumpkin with the feta and the hint of sweetness in the dressing with the honey. In no time this dish was ready to be served.
Again, I have no idea who gives these recipes their names. I wouldn’t have added the ‘salad’ to it. For me it was a great simple pasta dish but I guess ‘Pumpkin & Feta Pasta' was too simple of a name for this author1
Eat it or Starve!?? Absolutely eat….and I think even the fussy young ones would love it too!
