Feta and Parsley Pasta

As part of my constant quest to reduce the amount of crap in my house, I was sorting through my recipe box getting rid of old stuff that I will never make, or that I can look up on the internets. While doing this, I stumbled across a recipe for orzo pasta with feta and tomatoes. I happened to have some feta and some tiny pasta in the house, so I decided to try it. You will need:

1 cup uncooked orzo pasta
1 tsp olive oil
1 medium tomato, chopped (I used cherry tomatoes)
1/2 cup crumbled feta cheese
2 tsp finely chopped fresh parsley (I used dried, which was okay, but fresh is probably much better)
1/2 tsp grated lemon peel (what? forget that, what a waste of time)
2 tsp fresh lemon juice (I just used the stuff from a bottle, and I don’t see the difference)
Salt and pepper to taste (I of course used garlic salt)

Cook the pasta, drain it, and throw everything together. Eat it warm, and OH MY GOD SO GOOD!!

This is an insanely easy recipe, and would be great for a pot-luck or family event, if you can make it all the way there without eating the entire thing. I tried the same thing with some blue cheese I had around the house after making egg salad, and it was okay. The feta really kills it in this recipe. It’s not all that cheap for a pasta dish, but it’s worth it every once in awhile, like when feta goes on sale.
