Weekly < 30 min. Recipe #3

Bell Pepper-feta Pasta Toss
Ok sorry I took a week off to visit with family and make a pig of myself. So now this week you will get 2 less than 30 minutes recipes, including the Weight Watchers points. This one is riduculously easy because you basically use the boiling hot pasta water poured over the red pepper to soften them a bit.

6 ounces uncooked linguine or fettucine
1 large yellow or red bell pepper, seeded and cut into thin strips
1 cup quartered cherry tomatoes
3/4 cup finely chopped fresh parsley (optional)
salt to taste
1 (4-ounce) package crumbled feta cheese with basil and sun-dried tomatoes
1/4 cup sliced olives, drained (optional)

Cook pasta according to package directions. Put Pyrex measuring cup in sink, put colander over cup. Place bell pepper in acolander; drain pasta over bell pepper. Combine pasta, bell pepper, tomatoes, and remaining ingredients in a large bowl; toss gently and thin with a little reserved pasta water if desired. Serves 4

1 serving is 5 points so you could have 2 servings if you have had a good day.
