Mediterranean Pasta Salad

This recipe was given to me years ago.  I have adapted it for a larger quantity.  It's great for summer cookouts.  Please give it a try.  If you don't like feta cheese, substitute it for one that you do enjoy.  Here's the recipe:

12 oz. bow tie pasta, cooked & drained
1 medium zucchini, thinly sliced
1 carrot, thinly sliced
1 red pepper, chopped
2 green onions, sliced
2 1/4 oz. sliced ripe olives, drained
3/4 cup crumbled Feta cheese
1-2 cups prepared Italian dressing
salt & pepper to taste

Mix all the ingredients except dressing in a large bowl.  Toss to coat with about 1 cup dressing.  Cover & refrigerate one hour or until ready to serve.  Sometimes the pasta absorbs the dressing.  If it seems too dry, add additional dressing according to your tastes.

Serves 10-12
