Easy Light Summer Salads (only 5 ingredients)

I think it's important to keep things light and easy in the summer.  Our family is always on the go with activities and sports, so we have to get healthy fast complex carbs and nutrients to keep energized. 

Sometimes might confuse fast with processed items or drive through options.  Healthy can still be fast, tasty, and filling.

Feta Pasta Salad
1/2 Package of Organic Whole Wheat Penne Noodles
10 organic cherry tomatoes, chopped
1 organic crumbled sliced and quartered. 
1 tbsp. crumbed feta cheese. 
Newman's Own Italian Organic Dressing, to drizzle.
(If you have some sliced black olives it goes great with this dish)

Once Pasta is cooked and rinsed just add in all the ingredients.  I lightly drizzle the dressing over the pasta until I get the amount desired.  Then refrigerate until ready to eat.  Before serving remember to give it a toss to mix it all back up again.  Enjoy!
