BOWTIE PASTA SALAD

1 16 oz  Box of Bowtie Pasta
2 spring onions finely chopped
1 small carton of  grape tomatoes cut in half ( or 2 Cups of chopped fresh tomatoes if grape tomatoes are not available) 
1 fresh green pepper chopped
1 6 oz package of feta cheese crumbled
1 C of sliced black and green olives (if desired)
2 T fresh parsley chopped 
1/2 t freshly grated black pepper
salt to taste
1 large bottle of  greek salad dressing
( or italian dressing with cheese)

Cook and drain the pasta. In a large bowl place the pasta and all ingredents except the dressign. Toss gently to mix, then add the dressing as you like.( I usually save a little of the dressing to add just before serving because the pasta will soak up some of it.) Refridgerate for at least 2 hours before serving.

Note: Try not to be too heavy handed with the dressing, add then taste. 
This is a very versitile salad, you can add other veggies if you like, but it's a lite salad, no heavy mayo.
Enjoy!
