Just Something I Whipped Up & Menu Plan Monday

Oh! I'm soooo excited! I just found a couple of cute little (wink) blogs called A Girl Creative & Skip to my Lou and I'm in blog love!  There are so many creative ideas all in one place - I hit the blog jackpot with that little stumble (which BTW happened at A Little Tipsy. Anywho!! A Girl Creative hosts a Linky Party called "Just Something I Whipped Up", & Skip to My Lou hosts Made by you Monday so I'd thought I'd join in.  PC made fun of me as I was taking my photos...we had a talk about how I could have worse hobbies...LOL.  So here ya go - this is one of my fav lunches - I just call it "Carol's Pasta Salad" (Carol is the owner of my fav Wine Store - Casa De Vino and she made this on one our Wine tasting trips - that's  her with the pasta bag).
The salad that Carol brought on the trip is not exactly the same as mine - I played with the recipe a little. I added the dressing & the sun dried tomatoes - but it is tasty without them too!

So, you cook the pasta, drain and rinse the pasta.

Then you stir in a splash of dressing, a pinch of red pepper flakes (more if you like heat), a handful of diced sun-dried tomatoes, the whole can (drained) of kidney beans and 8 oz of feta.
