Eating: Simple Pasta Salad

I have been making this easy dish up for the past two weeks. It is good both hot and cold, doesn't take long to make, uses fresh herbs from my garden, and can easily be added to based on what you have in the fridge.

You Need:
pasta ( I mixed veggie penne with regular bowties)
herbs (basil, thyme, lemon leaves)
feta cheese
tomatoes
chicken broth (or bullion cube)
extra virgin olive oil

Directions:
Bring half chicken broth half water to a boil. Add pasta, cook according to the pasta box. Drain. While still hot drizzle with a couple teaspoons olive oil, add herbs and mix well. Cut cherry tomatoes in half along with any other veggies you want to add. After the pasta has cooled slightly add the veggies and feta. You can then serve immediately or put into refrigerator to chill. 

I eat this during the work day at my desk, and add another fruit in too. It is great right after my yoga workout that I get in during my lunch break and can easily be added to or taken away from based on the ingredients you have in you kitchen. It was inspired by a visit with my DeeDee recently and the veggie penne gets in some of my nutrients for the day. The fresh herbs make this salad so flavorful. 

What is your go-to salad recipe?
