Copycat Zoe’s Pasta Salad

I don’t know if a lot of you will know this restaurant, but Zoës Kitchen is the best healthy food in town, in my opinion at least! Often my co-worker’s and I go there for lunch and we always get the same thing, the sampler salad. The salad consists of scoop of pasta salad, potato salad, tuna or chicken. All to die for!! I already copied the potato salad (I will post later) and here is the pasta salad!

8 oz uncooked elbow or shell macaroni

1 well packed cup of fresh basil
1 drained can of cut tomatoes
DO NOT throw away the juice from tomatoes (use for cooking pasta)
3-4 oz of feta cheese
salt, pepper

1. Cook pasta according to the package. Use the tomato juice from the canned tomatoes and well, for flavor.

2. Drain the pasta. Place into large mixing bowl and cool a little (not completely)
3. Rip the basil leaves and add to pasta.

4. Add the tomatoes

5. Add the feta cheese, salt and pepper. Mix all ingredients very well.

6. Refrigerate overnight.
