ZUCCHINI, MINT & FETA ANGEL HAIR PASTA

ZUCCHINI, MINT & FETA ANGEL HAIR PASTA
0 vote

I always used to say that I didn’t really like mint. Times are changing, my friends, because this summer I’ve really been enjoying it (and not just in gum). If you’re like the old Marilou, you can substitute fresh cilantro or basil for the mint.

This pasta is great hot or cold (I’m leaning towards cold, though) and makes an excellent lunch to take to the office or to school. The next day, you can add a drizzle of olive or vegetable oil before digging in. 🙂
